‘Manaka’s heart with Pirates’


KickOff.com revealed in February that Pirates and Mamelodi Sundowns had made enquiries about the 25-year-old, who has also attracted interest from Platinum Stars and Polokwane City.

However, it now looks like Bucs will get their man.

"The (Leopards) chairman (David Thidiela) met with Edgar on Monday to discuss about offers from both Pirates and Sundowns," says the source.

"Edgar has made his mind, his heart is at Parktown with Orlando Pirates. The chairman will meet with Manaka's future team in the next few days to finalise the deal."
