Papua New Guinea international Wira Wama has returned to Hekari United for the second half of the Papua New Guinea National Soccer League, according to sources close to the player.
The 30-year-old, who has five senior caps for his country, has returned from studies in the United States, and was quickly snapped up by the league leaders to bolster their midfield options.
Hekari have also today confirmed the signing of Gulf Komara’s central defender Carlos Onne. The 20-year-old is an excellent signing, not just for this season but also for the future of the club. Onne is currently playing in his fourth NSL season, having played for a different club each year: he played for PS Rutz in 2017, Southern Strikers in 2018, and Eastern Stars last season, before moving to Gulf Komara. This will be his fifth club in four years.
According to rumours, Hekari are also hoping to bring Solomon Islands international Tutizama Tanito, 26, back to the club, although his current side, Henderson Eels, are in the quarter-finals of the OFC Champions League, so it’s unclear as to whether Tanito would be willing to sacrifice a shot at OFC glory to return to the club where he spent five seasons between 2011 and 2016.
