As revealed by the Siya crew in edition 1029 of Soccer Laduma, it was confirmed that Thlone signed two contracts, with Wits and Pirates respectively. In wanting to avoid a tug of war that has been looming for the services of the defender, Wits and Pirates have now resolved the matter, as confirmed to the Siya crew by a reliable source.

“It seems like Wits and Pirates have reached an agreement on where the player is going. The matter has been discussed and it all seems sorted now. The player has since travelled to Johannesburg to begin training with Wits. He will be with Wits for the new season,” said the source.

Contacted for comment, the player’s agent, Ratshibvumo Mulovhedzi, confirmed that Thlone has arrived at Wits to begin a new chapter of his career with the league champions.

“Yes, the player will be playing for Wits. The matter has been discussed and Wits and Pirates have reached an agreement. Wits have now registered the player with the PSL. I was phoned and told to come to Jo’burg to sort (out) the matter. It’s all been sorted and we are grateful to both clubs and their representatives,” said Mulovhedzi.

Tlhone's fly by nite so-called agent is a pathetic liar....he likes media attention and it is shocking thta the editor succumbs to this antics....a crucial question on the amicable agreement between Wits and Pictures over the player amazingly results in the player remaining with Wits when he signed first with Pirates...these assertion does not tally considering that he "signed"for Pirates first...it is incomprehensible that Pirates sitting with a valid contract would let a player go to a club which signed a player irregularly...As it stands Pirates has neither commented on the subhead nor issued an official statement.To me this is a serious anomaly.WIts has confirmed thru Jose Ferreira on SA FM that Pirates has distanced itself from this debacle.How then can this agent claim that the 2 clubs agreed amicably.What is it to agree on when there is no dispute in the first place?food for thought....this Agent is not fit and proper to represent players...His service is substandard and all that he likes is to see his name on the media platform...

INDIDANE can confirm that former PSL general manager Derek Blanckensee has taken up an administrative role with Orlando Pirates. The PSL parted ways with Blanckensee in September last year due to 'administrative shortcomings in his department in the processing of a registration'. However, the ex-Bidvest Wits official has since linked up with Bucs, who finished a trophyless 2016/17 season outside of the top eight in the league for the first time in the PSL era. "I have joined the club but only as a consultant in administration," said Blanckensee.

Its look like Pirates and Wits have other deals which are yet to be seen,I predict Xola Mlambo and Ben Motswari will join Bucs and Gabuza will be part of the deal.

I hope toothless is up to something, I expect to see Ntshangase and Mlambo going to Pirates or else Khoza can go to hell.
