Orlando Pirates defender Olisa Ndah might be his way out of the club before the end of the month.

Earlier this year, the Nigerian defender was reported to be a target for clubs in Greece, Serie A and Major League Soccer

Ndah has spent two seasons with the Buccaneers, but since scoring an own goal in the Soweto Derby against Kaizer Chiefs in February, the defender has not played a competitive match for Pirates. Fans have also made it known that they want the player out of the club.

NDAH COULD BE RELEASED BY PIRATES

In first season at Pirates, Ndah was solid at the back and was finally rewarded when he was called by the Nigerian Football team to represents them at the 2022 African Cup on Nations.

The Buccaneers had a good 2022/23 season, finishing second but the defender had a mix season. Reports claimed Ndah wanted to leave the club, but his agent Mike Makaab denied the reports.

“Absolute nonsense, I addressed this very issue with the Chairman [Dr. Irvin Khoza] and both him and I agreed it’s not even worth our while to respond to issues like that, when journalists think they can make their minds up as to what’s happening and talk about sources, it’s absolute nonsense,” Makaab told iDiski Times.

“The truth is, he had a fantastic first [season] with Pirates and then sadly, as he was hitting his straps again, he’s had niggling injuries. We hope that he’s through the worst of it all now, he’s working extremely hard at rehab and we’re confident he will be fit and ready to resume action with the team for pre-season.”

It remains to be seen if Ndah will be part of the Pirates squad next season.
