Bucs' Foreigner Conundrum

Orlando Pirates have a bit of a conundrum on their hands – they have nine foreigners on their books, four more than they are allowed. So what will happen? Let's take a look! 

The Buccaneers have been operating profusely throughout this transfer window, and have added two new foreign signings to their roster.

Pirates are only allowed to register five foreigners for the coming season, meaning that four players will have to be sent elsewhere.

Browse through the gallery above to see which foreigners Pirates have on their books.

The arrivals of Marshall Munetsi (Zimbabwe) and Bernard Morrison (Ghana) means it's highly unlikely that they won't be registered, while Tendai Ndoro's form during the closing stages of the previous season will surely signify that his position is not under threat.  

Felipe Ovono has long been linked with an exit from Mayfair, but there are three more players who will still have to walk after that.

Should he leave, Yasser Mugerwa, who has struggled for game time over the years and has been tipped to be transferred, could follow suit.

The return of Mwape Musonda and Helder Pelembe from loans does make things slightly complicated, and coach Muhsin Ertugral will need to decide whether to keep, sell or send them out on loan once again.   

Another player whose future is up in the air Issa Sarr. The midfielder is highly talented, but he struggled for consistency last term, with many fans eventually calling for his exit.

Meanwhile, another strange situation has unfolded with James Okwuosa. It has been rumoured that the Nigerian's move could be called off, and it is for this reason that he has not been included in the list above. 

It seems a number of big decisions need to be made by Bucs management. Which five foreigners do you think should stay at the club?
