Pirates Striker Poised For January Exit

Orlando Pirates looks set to part ways with striker Bienvenu Eva Nga in the coming days on a mutual agreement.

The Cameroonian striker arrived at Pirates after scoring 10 goals in 29 games for Chippa United in the 2021/22 season which attracted interest from across the continent.

However, things have not gone to plan at Mayfair with the 30-year-old limited to just 17 appearances, and scoring once, which was his debut for the club.

Sources within Pirates have confirmed Eva Nga is likely to leave in the coming days while his compatriot Souaibou Marou will also be allowed to leave should there be suitors for his services.

However, with Marou arriving in a big-money move after being part of the 2022 FIFA World Cup squad in Qatar, a loan or permanent transfer is being sought from the Buccaneers.
