R5m Pirates Target Lands New Deal
Pirates Target, Evans Rusike, Has Signed A New Three-Year Deal With Maritzburg
Maritzburg United striker, Evans Rusike, has committed his future to the club, penning a long-term contract despite reported interested from Orlando Pirates.
It has been well-documented that the Buccaneers were eager to try and land the forward’s signature before the transfer window closed, however it was thought that the R5 million price tag could cause Pirates or any other potential suitors to shy away.
Maritzburg have always remained adamant that they were looking to keep hold of the Zimbabwean, and it now appears that they have managed to do so.
The Siya crew has been informed that Rusike has penned a three-year deal with the Team of Choice that will run until the end of the the 2019/20 Absa Premiership season, something that should put off any club looking to try and tempt him away.
It remains to be seen whether any outfit will still attempt to test Maritzburg’s resolve, though it does look as though Fadlu Davids has managed to keep hold of one of his key players as they approach the new season and this weekend’s MTN8 clash with Mamelodi Sundowns.
