Kaizer Chiefs and Orlando Pirates have been consistently linked with Bafana Bafana winger Pule Mmodi, who is expected to depart from Golden Arrows. However, recent developments indicate that Mmodi has rejected the opportunity to join Orlando Pirates.
Throughout the past two seasons, both Chiefs and Pirates have shown keen interest in acquiring Mmodi’s services, with rumors suggesting that both clubs were actively pursuing the talented winger. The pursuit of Mmodi’s signature has been an intriguing saga, and it seems poised to intensify at the end of the current season.
Initially, it was believed that Chiefs were leading the race to sign Mmodi, with reports indicating that they were planning to secure him on a free transfer. However, Golden Arrows exercised their one-year option on the player’s contract, complicating Chiefs’ plans and necessitating the payment of a transfer fee.
As the season progressed, rumors began to circulate that Orlando Pirates were interested in hijacking the potential move for Mmodi. Recent reports, however, suggest that the player has rejected Orlando Pirates’ advances. According to a source close to the situation, the Buccaneers were previously considered favorites to secure Mmodi’s signature, but Kaizer Chiefs and AmaZulu are still in contention. Golden Arrows have also expressed their determination to keep hold of the talented winger.
It remains to be seen where Pule Mmodi will ultimately end up, but it is clear that Orlando Pirates’ pursuit of the player has been unsuccessful, with Mmodi opting to explore other possibilities.
