University of Pretoria are looking to conclude talks with Mame Niang as the lanky Senegalese striker looks set to extend his stay with the club for another year.
Niang’s contract will expire at the end of the current season, but AmaTuks have an option to extend it for a further year.
While KickOff.com understands that the deal is set to be completed soon, coach Steve Barker is not willing to divulge any information related to the talks.
“We will not reveal the details of the talks we are having with him. We will make an announcement regarding this when the process has been finalised,” Barker says.
The coach also confirms that his technical team is still assessing former Kaizer Chiefs midfielder David Obua, who KickOff.com spotted training with the club on Friday.
“We are assessing him at this stage and we will make a decision [on whether to sign him or not] in due course,” Barker says.
The 28-year-old Obua has made 46 appearances for the Ugandan national team, scoring 22 goals.
The player, whose contract with Scottish club Hearts expired last year, is a free agent.
