The 34-year-old centre-back is currently a free agent after parting ways with Chippa United in the new year.

Nthethe is expected to travel to Limpopo this week and finalise a deal with Bakgaga, according to sources close to the relegation-threatened club.

Baroka chairman Khurishi Mphahlele confirmed their interest in Nthethe.

"Yes, we are interested. We are still talking," Mphahlele said after his team held title contenders Orlando Pirates to a 1-1 draw at Orlando Stadium in Soweto on Tuesday night.

Bakgaga, in 12th spot on the table with 16 points from 18 games, recently recruited striker Siyabonga Vilane from National First Division side Uthongathi.
