Cape Town City refuse to rule out Thabo Nodada transfer


The Bafana Bafana international has been tipped to secure a lucrative move to Gauteng, with news emerging that initial talks with Pirates have taken place.

Speaking to KickOff back March 12, the 25-year-old himself refused to rule out a possible move to one of the big three clubs if a deal that suited all parties could be reached.

According to a source, KickOff can confirm that Nodada has indeed been approached by a Gauteng club which has been left for CT City chairman John Comitis to consider.

Pirates, Kaizer Chiefs and Mamelodi Sundowns have also all previously been linked with the talented midfielder at one stage.

Last season Nodada extended his stay with the Citizens by a further two years, with his contract now set to expire in June, 2024.

In responding to the reports, CT City disclosed that Comitis had been out of the country and has not yet held any talks with interested parties.

"The chairman he's been in Greece, and he hasn't spoken to any other clubs about Nodada," CT City media officer Julian Bailey said.

"The chairman is arriving back in the country later tonight. So he hasn't spoken to any other club about Nodada."

Pressed further regarding a potential transfer, City refused to rule out any deals in the future.

"I cannot guarantee that because the window is still open, so I don't know if the chairman comes back and he starts engaging with other clubs.

"I don't know if he has emails waiting for him when he's back. So I'll have to check with him as soon as he gets back. But, the last conversation I had with him, there were no talks with any club."
