The sources state that Richard Ofori’s contract with Chippa United is set to expire in June, and the team is making efforts to lure him to the east coast of South Africa. According to one source, Chippa United is proactively preparing for life after their current number one goalkeeper, Stanley Nwabali, amid speculation that he may leave the club following his impressive performances at the Africa Cup of Nations.

The source also revealed Chippa’s interest in Ofori as a potential replacement for Nwabali and their determination to secure his transfer by the end of the season. Another source mentioned the possibility of a hurdle in Chippa’s pursuit of Ofori, pointing out that Orlando Pirates, Ofori’s current team, could potentially extend his contract.

The source acknowledged that while there is no confirmed extension at the moment, it is not an indication that Pirates are not interested in keeping Ofori. The source emphasized that Chippa’s ability to acquire Ofori depends on Pirates’ decision regarding their goalkeeper, hinting at a wait-and-see approach.

Ofori, who is 30 years old, joined Pirates from Maritzburg United in the 2020/21 season. He has also featured in three Caf Champions League matches during the early rounds, where Pirates did not progress to the group stage.

Soccer Laduma attempted to contact Chippa United for a comment but did not receive a response at the time of publication.
