Wits, Pirates set for swap deal

Transfer News

Wits coach Gavin Hunt on Wednesday evening hinted at a "big" signing on Thursday, with sources revealing that midfielder Xola Mlambo is believed to be on his way to The Buccaneers.

In exchange, The Clever Boys are expected to welcome utility player Abbubaker Mobara.

Mlambo has been linked with both Pirates and Kaizer Chiefs, but it seems the Mayfair-based outfit have done enough to land the midfield ace.

Mobara, who has made 10 Absa Premiership appearances for Pirates this season, is set to move on following the arrival of Diamond Thopola from Chippa United.
