A buzz surrounds Ndah after he made his Africa Cup of Nations debut for the Super Eagles in their final group stage game, despite the fact that he only played for 15 minutes. This was owing to how seamlessly he integrated into the team's set-up, despite his recent 24th birthday.
He was one of the most promising young players to come from the Nigerian Super League, having earned his senior international debut before joining Pirates. He was also instrumental in Akwa United's historic title triumph, which he helped to secure with his towering presence.
Pirates were able to gain his services, and before he had signed a contract with the club, his agent Mike Makaab predicted that he would be the best player he had ever introduced to South Africa's football.
"I think he's settled in extremely well at Orlando Pirates, and he's without a doubt a terrific footballer with enormous talent," Makaab tells iDiski Times. "One has to be sensible when making statements, and I think he's settled in pretty well at Orlando Pirates," Makaab says.
"However, he must maintain his humility and dedication to his profession, and he must understand that in order to take the next step, which is ultimately a move to Europe, he must continuously perform at a high level, and then the rest will flow organically," says the coach.
When questioned about the natural interest that has developed as a result of his domineering form for the Buccaneers, Makaab stated that the Soweto giants did not recruit him with the purpose of using the club as a stepping stone to a bigger club.
"Pirates never sign players with the intent of making a profit; they paid a significant transfer fee for him, but in retrospect, it was a good deal." "However, they paid a significant sum, and I don't believe any major club in the world purchases players solely for the purpose of selling them," he added.
"However, one thing I can tell you about the Pirates is that, contrary to popular belief, the chairman is not difficult when it comes to players relocating to Europe. I relocated [Mbulelo] Mabizela, [Tso] Vilakazi, and [Marshall] Munetsi, who recently departed to Europe, as well as Andile Jali.
"A large number of players have left the Pirates to play in Europe; it is a question of whether or not the contract is fair to all parties." Assuming Ndah's market worth is X, and it is an accurate representation of X, and assuming I bring an offer to the table that is greater than market value, there is no doubt the chairman will sit down with me and have that discussion.
"It's something he's always done. Ndah, on the other hand, should not look too far ahead; instead, he should concentrate his efforts on improving game by game, week by week, and the rest would take care of itself."
Ndah has appeared in just 13 games for the Pirates since joining them in the off-season, but his early performances indicate that he is on the verge of reaching greater heights.
