Awal Mohammed on the radar of Chiefs and Pirates
South African Premier Soccer League giants Orlando Pirates and Kaizer Chiefs have have entered into hot race to sign Ghana defender Awal Mohammed after he terminated his contract with Saudi side Al Shabab.
The 27-year-old parted ways with the Saudi Pro League side after making nine appearances for the club in the Saudi top-flight and featured in the Asian Champions League but could not help them progress from the Group stage.
Pirates and Chiefs are scrambling for the signature of the defender who is capped by Ghana and has enormous experience playing in the South African top-flight after seasons spell with Maritzburg United.
Awal joined Al Shabab from South African club Maritzburg United where he has played his professional football since 2012.
