Pirates scout Pakamisa
News coming out of Zimbabwe is that Orlando Pirates are keeping tabs on Dynamos forward Washington Pakamisa.

With his goalscoring exploits, he has carried that form into this season and that has alerted Bucs to speed up their approach for him, as they seek to shore up their goal-shy attack.

The Nigerian-born player is now looking at a move to Eastern Europe to revitalise his once promising career. Orlando Pirates and Bloemfontein Celtic are the ones on the local front touted to be interested in his services as well and they could very well cash in on him if things in Netanya go pear-shape.
