Agent addresses reports linking Christian Ntouba to Orlando Pirates

Dr Irvin Khoza - Orlando Pirates
The Buccaneers were reported to have entered the race to sign the 24-year-old marksman, but Goal can confirm that there's no truth in the reports

Goal can reveal that Orlando Pirates have not shown interest in Cameroonian striker Christian Ntouba.

This comes after reports emerged that the Buccaneers were intending to hijack his potential move to Bidvest Wits.

According to the player's agent, Michael Ngobeni of M Sport Management, Epoupa is solely focused on impressing Gavin Hunt and his technical team.

Ngobeni challenged anyone interested in the Ntouba, including the Sea Robbers, to directly contact him should they want to strike a deal. 

"I don't know anything about Pirates hijacking Epoupa. All I know is that the boy is at Wits. He's excited and he's training. Wits also so far are good. He just needs more time so that they can assess him nicely," Ngobeni told Goal

"But anything can happen in football, but if they [Pirates] are interested in the player, they must phone me," he concluded. 

Ntouba has also been linked with a possible move to Pirates nemesis Kaizer Chiefs, although nothing has been confirmed by either party.
