Nodada Confirms Pirates Interest

Thabo Nodada has confirmed that Orlando Pirates were in talks with Cape Town City over his signature and he was ready to leave.

The 26-year-old featured 29 times for the Citizens last season, scoring four goals.

He was linked with a move to the Buccaneers and now confirmed that both clubs were in negotiations before talks broke down.

“I know there were discussions, but I know also there was no agreement, so it was always just discussions and nothing more,” Nodada told Kick Off.

“As a result, nothing ever came to me as sort of communication from Pirates except a chat with the chairman John Comitis.

“I think there was an interest, but it didn’t get to a point where it was intended to be, or it was put out to the public. I think there was a conversation, but that’s where it ended. 

“The chairman did inform me that he was trying to make a deal, but it didn’t happen.”

Nodada, though, confirmed that he would have been keen to Orlando Stadium had both sides agreed to terms.

“I think I didn’t have a problem with the move to Pirates at all. If all parties were happy with a deal, then I would be happy,” he explains.

“So yes, I was willing to complete a move to Pirates.”

Nodada featured in the MTN8 quarter-final for City but picked up an injury that has seen him sidelines since.
