Cape Town - Former Orlando Pirates midfielder, Nhlakanipho Ntuli, has finally put pen to paper on a five-year professional contract with Dutch side, FC Twente.

According to the Prosport International website, just over a year ago that the talented youngster had been offered a five-year deal by the Eredivisie club, and that he would join up with them as soon as he turned 18.

Now, after his 18th birthday in February, ‘Nanana’ is able to sign a full-time professional contract with Twente and is set to make his Eredivisie debut at the start of next season.

Ntuli had been linked with Twente for a while having been through a co-development project between them and Pirates, though he was unable to make a first team appearance for the Buccaneers, despite spending most of his time training with their first team.

The attacking midfielder played a crucial role for Amajita as they won the COSAFA Under-20 Youth Championship late last year, and is tipped for bigger things in the future.

"For me, this contract is a dream come true, playing football in a European competition," said Ntuli.

"During a tournament with the Orlando Pirates youth team in London, I was scouted by FC Twente. I had some training internships at the FC Twente Football Academy last year and was able to get used to the new environment. From the first day, the feeling was good at FC Twente and I'm glad I was able to convince the coaches during my internship. I look forward to the new season".
