Bucs Closing In On Thanda Goalkeeper
Orlando Pirates Linked With Thanda Royal Zulu Goalkeeper
News reaching the Siya crew is that Orlando Pirates are closing in on the goalkeeper, Xolani Ngcobo, from Thanda Royal Zulu.
The goalkeeper has been identified as a target for the Buccaneers during the current transfer window. The 23-year-old contributed hugely to Thanda’s promotion to the PSL with his impressive performances of the past season.
He has been with the KwaZulu-Natal outfit since January, having joined the club from Baroka FC.
“Orlando Pirates is interested in Xolani Ngcobo from Thanda. The club is keen to sign him. He is likely to leave Thanda for Pirates during this transfer window. The deal is very likely to take place,” said the source.
The Buccaneers want to make changes to their defence, after conceding a whopping 40 goals in their Absa Premiership campaign this past season. It was recently reported on the Soccer Laduma website that Chippa United has also shown interest in Ngcobo.
