By Soccer Laduma - Jul 18, 2017 05:17 PM

Brighton Mhlongo has completed his switch from Orlando Pirates to Chippa United.

The deal has been concluded between all the parties involved, this after Mhlongo's move was initially confirmed by the Port Elizabeth-based club over the weekend.

The reports of the shot-stopper joining the club were later refuted by the player’s camp on social media. The Siya crew has now been informed that Mhlongo's move to the Chilli Boys for the 2017/18 season has been finalised.

Having signed Wayne Sandilands, after he parted ways with Mamelodi Sundowns, Pirates had five goalkeepers on their books going the pre-season.

With Mhlongo set to turn out in the colours of Chippa in the new season, the Buccaneers are now left with Jackson Mabokgwane, Siyabonga Mpontshane and Emmanuel Daniel, to be added to Sandilands in their goalkeeping department.

In addition, Pirates’ first confirmed signing of this transfer window was that of Thamsanqa Sangweni, who joined the club from the Chilli Boys.

watch the space Pirates will struggle the correct diagnosis is not properly done. Mhlongo alone was not Pirates, a goalkeeper is good as his defence

@indidane Mhlongo was not playing alone, and he was the last line of defence. I believe defence starts from the front . There is no way a goalkeeper cannot leak goals if the whole team is not functional.

Mhlongo was given enough time by pirates but he failed us for long time now is enough let him try to Chippa to prove himself then he can come back and claim his Jersey

As usually Pirates always do wrong discisions when it comes to player transfers, last year it was Gumede, Myeni, Majoro, Mahamutsa followed by Chabalala & Gymah, now is Mhlongo and they still left useless Gcaba, Sarr, Mpontshane and Phungwayo

People are so obsessed with the TOP 8 as if they are going to win it. Yes Bucs is not there but is your team going to win it?
