South African club Orlando Pirates Football Club has signed Nigerian international Olisa Ndah from the reigning champions of the Nigeria Professional Football League (NPFL), Akwa United Football Club of Uyo with a 3 year contract.
The club announced the arrest of the towering 23-year-old defender on Thursday through a statement on its various social media platforms.
“Orlando Pirates Football Club is pleased to announce the signing of Ndah, who is part of recently crowned Nigerian Premier League champions Akwa United.
“Ndah is a 23-year-old defender who joins the Mighty Buccaneers and was part of an Akwa United squad that won its first Nigerian Premier League title last season.
“The towering centre-back was widely regarded as one of the best players in the Nigerian Premier League last season,” said Orlando Pirates.
Speaking of the signings, club manager Floyd Mbele said: “We are proud to announce the signing of Ndah.
“I would like to personally thank Akwa United for the professional way they handled the transaction.”
Ndah represented Nigeria U-23 three times and he was at the 2019 Africa U-23 Cup of Nations in Egypt.
He has been capped twice for the Super Eagles of Nigeria.
Ndah joined Akwa United from Port Harcourt’s Garden City Panthers in a first annual loan before completing a permanent transfer in January 2020.
He played on loan for Delta Stars and Remo Stars before moving permanently to Akwa United.
Obviously, Garden City Panthers still has a 25 percent resale clause on Ndah.
