Aces to assess Mbesuma

Johannesburg - Mpumalanga Black Aces have confirmed they are running their eye over Orlando Pirates striker Collins Mbesuma with a view to a move for the club for next season.

According to the supersport.com website,  the Zambian international has fallen out of favour at The Buccaneers having made just four starts for the side last season and is clearly deemed surplus to requirements by coach Vladimir Vermezovic.

Black Aces, who have a history of reigniting the careers of players, are now looking to see whether the forward can add value to their squad for next season.

“Collins Mbesuma will join Aces on Monday for a final assessment by [coach] Clive Barker (who also returns on Monday following knee surgery),” the club tweeted on Wednesday.

Should he join AmaZayoni it will be a sixth PSL club for the much-travelled striker, whose peak came in the 2004/05 season when he netted 35 goals in all competitions for Kaizer Chiefs.

That led to an unsuccessful spell overseas where injuries took their toll and he returned to the PSL and Mamelodi Sundowns in 2008. He has since also gone on to play for Moroka Swallows and Lamontville Golden Arrows, before joining Pirates in 2012.
