The name of Chippa United’s Diamond Thopola is said to have made it into the list of potential targets for Orlando Pirates.

Pirates and Chippa are again continuing with the working relationship which they have enjoyed in recent seasons. Pirates’ first confirmed signing of this July/August transfer window is that of Thamsanqa Sangweni, who has joined the club from the Chilli Boys.

The Port Elizabeth outfit is expected to get a few players from Pirates for the upcoming season, including James Okwuosa and Mahlatse Makudubela. 

According to sources, Thopola’s name has been bandied about for a potential move to the Soweto giants. Going into their preparations for the new season, Bucs will be short of one right back from last season’s squad, after the club allowed Thembela Sikhakhane to leave for AmaZulu.

Thopola, who earned himself Bafana Bafana call-ups under both former coaches Shakes Mashaba and Owen da Gama for his performances as Chippa right back is being considered for a move to Bucs.

Bucs are serious about wanting to strengthen the team’s defence, after conceding a whopping 40 goals from 30 league games last season.

Chippa players does not have the experience to win big games let alone to handle the pressure. They won't win us anything. We only needed Sangweni. We ate fine, Management please look elsewhere.

I agree with you tipa_ta_wena. Let Pirates not sign players to bench them, they are destroying them.

Jele deserves to go to free, sell manyisa and makola as a buy one get one free... Gcaba can stay as cover, nyauza free, Saar sold back to platinum stars, mabokgwane and mpontshane free double package, phungwayo to baroka for free, makudubela chippa on loan. Kutumela, amigo memela and morrison deserves more chance... Orlando pirates has talent in abundance at their disposal, we just need a smart coach, get us shakes or krol iron duke

we really need to release Issa Sarr, period! oa jesa straight. he is not even playing for his country. any team facing pirates, know that they are going to win, bcz Issa Saar and Manyisa r so weak. Pirates is spineless. Pirates management is focusing at the wrong sections of the team. Mxm!
