Soweto - The skilful and speedy Golden Arrows midfielder Njabulo Manqana looks set to join Orlando Pirates in a deal that could see striker Siphelele Mthembu go the other way.
The Durban club confirmed on Tuesday that Manqana had stopped training with them due to his possible move to defending Absa Premiership champions Pirates. The Soweto giants used player collateral by releasing Mthembu to Arrows.
The Telkom Knockout and MTN8 champions have also been linked with Siyabonga Nkosi, but their main interest has been KZN-born Manqana who is capable of playing in a variety of attacking positions, that might boost their CAF Champions League campaign.
Manqana has provided excellent assistance for several goals scored by his team-mates, and also had 25 starts for Golden Arrows in the 2009/10 Absa Premiership season and chipped in with three goals.
There was no official word as yet from Pirates about the player’s move.
