- Highlands Park coach Owen Da Gama couldn't contain his excitement when asked about Musa Nyatama
- Nyatama was previously voted Orlando Pirates' best player of the year, but was released in January
- Da Gama alluded to an imminent announcement to confirm the signing of Nyatama
Highlands Park coach Owen Da Gama has waxed lyrical about former Orlando Pirates midfielder Musa Nyatama.
Despite being voted the Pirates Player of the Year in the 2017/18 season, Nyatama requested to have his contract terminated in January.
To the surprise of many supporters, Pirates management agreed and Nyatama became a free agent.
Owen Da Gama quickly gave the impression that he was ready to pounce as he lauded the midfield ace.
Da Gama said, “With all my heart, I love him [Musa]. But I think there will definitely be a press conference or a press release very soon, and unfortunately, it's not my place to confirm anything.”
The 32-year-old excites Da Gama and a move to the Lions of the North could see a return to form.
Daily Sun reported that Da Gama alluded to two or three other players who are close to finalising deals with Highlands Park.
However, Da Gama stopped short of making any official announcement and urged the media to wait for an imminent press conference.
