After signing Abbubaker Mobara, who left Orlando Pirates in June, Cape Town City could be set to make another signing with a player from the Soweto giants. 

Following his exit from the Buccaneers, midfielder Mpho Makola has emerged as a potential signing for the Citizens, of who Coach Benni McCarthy is a keen admirer.

Pirates confirmed last week that the club reached an agreement for termination of Makola’s contract after initially placing the 33-year-old Alexandra-born player on the transfer list.

With the player now a free agent, the Siya crew has learnt that interest is pouring in for the free-kick specialist’s services.

However, indications are that it is McCarthy’s side in the Mother City that leads the race to win Makola’s signature. Makola has arrived in Cape Town and appears to be close to concluding a deal with the club.

He's a very good player. Just that there are too many midfielders at Mayfair , he ended up being under utilised.
