Pirates announce Nyatama signing

Musa Nyatama

Orlando Pirates have agreed to terms with Bloemfontein Celtic for the services of midfielder Musa Nyatama.

Kjell Jonevret has been in the process of bolstering his squad for the upcoming 2017-18 Absa Premiership season, and Nyatama, who is said to be have been a long-time transfer target of the Buccaneers, becomes the club’s fourth arrival during the transfer window, following the signings of Thamsanqa Sangweni, Wayne Sandilands and Nigerian striker Christian Obiozor.

With over 200 appearances for the likes of Thanda Royal Zulu, Maritzburg United, Sundowns and Celtic, Nyatama brings a wealth of local experience with him to the Mayfair-based outfit and the defensive midfielder will most likely compete with new signing Sangweni for a starting berth in the side.
