DStv Premiership side Orlando Pirates are mulling over offering centre-back Olisa Ndah a new deal as his current contract expires at the end of the season.

The Nigerian international signed a three-year deal with the Soweto giants at the start of the 2021/22 campaign on the back of a stellar season where he helped Nigerian outfit Akwa United to a league title. 

In January 2024, Ndah will be eligible to sign a pre-contract with a club of his choice. The Buccaneers have not yet drawn up a new deal. However, an SN24 source close to the club has revealed that the team want Ndah to extend his stay. 

The Super Eagles defender previously attracted overseas interest, and indications are that the Bucs are not prepared to lose out on the experience Ndah brings to the squad. 

While talks have not officially opened over a new deal, news from the club is that they are looking to offer the 25-year-old another lengthy deal.
