Orlando Pirates are said to have reopened talks with Cape Town City on the possible transfer of Thabo Nodada to the Soweto side. The club’s management are said to be unhappy with the kind of players the club had in midfield.

“The technical team raised concerns that they cannot use a variety of systems in the team because they have the same kind of players. 

“The management has then gone out to try and get different players on the technical team’s recommendations and Thabo Nodada is one of those they have set their eyes on. 

“The talks have already started I think and there could be some swap deals done to sweeten it for City,” said the source.

The 26-year-old Nodada has been linked with several big sides in recent times, most notably Kaizer Chiefs, but City moved swiftly to tie him to a contract until end of 2024 earlier this year, making any possible move one to keep a bated eye on.
