In the latest PSL transfer rumours there is a suggestion that Orlando Pirates will try to beat Kaizer Chiefs to a highly-rated midfielder.
Among the juiciest transfer rumours going around today is the claim that Orlando Pirates are set to snatch a Kaizer Chiefs target from underneath the noses of Amakhosi.
Pirates have reportedly opened talks with Baroka FC with a view to signing National Under-23 star Goodman Mosele.
Mosele was named the PSL young player of the year last season and has continued to impress this term.
Orlando Pirates have a good relationship with Baroka boss Khurishi Mphahlele and could beat Kaizer Chiefs to the punch on this one.
With Chiefs also in the picture, it is looking increasingly likely that Mosele could be playing next to one of his Amakhosi or Pirates heroes sooner than he thinks.
Meanwhile, Mosele has shared talks on reports linking him to Pirates denying contacts on him.“These are all rumours,” Mosele said when speaking on Daily Sun.
“I haven’t heard anything from my employers and representatives.”
Chiefs have been unable to make a move on Mosele as the Glamour Boys are currently banned from registering new players until July 2021.
Chiefs were hit with a ban after they were found guilty by Fifa of illegally signing Andriamirado “Dax” Andrianarimanana in 2018‚ when he had a contract with his former club, Fosa Juniors in native Madagascar.
Mosele did admit that he was flattered by the reports linking him with the two biggest football clubs in the country.
“It keeps me going. It’s not really getting into me. I’m happy here. If the chairman feels it’s the right [move] then yeah,” he concluded.
Mosele played a vital role in helping Baroka avoid relegation from the PSL last season – playing 26 times across all competitions.
He is currently part of South Africa’s under-23 squad comprising of only locally-based players in a training camp in Durban.
The training camp is part of the preparations for the Olympic Games scheduled for Tokyo, Japan from July 23 to August 8 and the team is under the guidance of coach David Notoane.
