Bucs Keen On Maritzburg Defender, Time Running Out

Orlando Pirates Interested In Maritzburg United Defender

By Soccer Laduma - Aug 29, 2017 07:24 PM

Orlando Pirates are believed to be interested in signing Brian Onyango from Maritzburg United, with a view of adding him to the squad for this season.

Under their new-look technical team led by Milutin Sredojevic and Rhulani Mokwena, The Buccaneers are keen on building the team for the season from a solid defensive structure.

Bucs have conceded one goal from their two games so far this season. Having introduced Innocent Maela to their new-look defence, and using Ntsikelelo Nyauza and Gladwin Shitolo as their two centre-backs, the club is believed to be keen on signing another defender to add to Sredojevic’s squad.

According to sources, Onyango is one of the players earmarked for a potential move to Pirates. The Kenyan is yet to feature in any of Maritzburg’s matches so far this season.

Indication from sources close to the KZN outfit is that the club has plans of registering him as a local player this season. Having arrived in Mzansi when he joined Santos five years ago, Onyango qualifies for residential permit status in the country.

The 23-year-old has applied for permanent residence. According to sources in the know, Bucs are monitoring the player’s situation with interest. Siya sources have revealed that Kenya national team coach, Stanley Okumbi, was recently contacted about Onyango on how he would fit in Bucs’ set-up, should the club manage to sign him.  

But with the current transfer window closing shut on Thursday, the player might remain at Maritzburg for now, with Bucs expected to re-visit their interest in him in the next one in January.

At the end of last season, The Team of Choice exercised the two-year option they had on the player’s contract with intentions of keeping him in the team until at least the end of June of 2019.
