Sangweni Announced, Konqobe To Follow To Bucs?
Orlando Pirates Reshuffle The Squad For New Season
With Orlando Pirates announcing the signing of Thamsanqa Sangweni, Ayabulela Konqobe is expected to follow him to the club.
Pirates announced the signing of Sangweni from Chippa United on Monday afternoon. The Soweto giants confirmed that the central midfielder has been signed on a deal to run until 2020.
Sources close to Bucs have confirmed that the club could be set to welcome Konqobe to the team. Konqobe, who has been the sought-after player in this transfer window, has returned to Thanda Royal Zulu after his proposed move to Chippa fell through.
According to a reliable source, the central defender has already penned a deal with Pirates.
“The boy has signed with Pirates. It’s kept under wraps between the parties for now,” said the source.
The former SA U20 captain is one of the players expected to leave Thanda, as the KwaZulu-Natal club waits to hear from the league about the sale of their PSL status to AmaZulu.
The Buccaneers already confirmed that Innocent Maela, who captained Thanda to promotion from NFD to the PSL, is expected to return to the club.
