Defenders Who Could Strengthen Pirates' Backline

Orlando Pirates are still struggling for form, even under the tutelage of Kjell Jonevret, and it is their defensive line that needs the most work done on it. Which players do you think could help strengthen the defence?

Bucs haven't kept a clean sheet since February, and have only managed to prevent teams from scoring against them on five occasions this season.

Despite the arrival of Marc van Heerden and James Okwuosa, it seems the backline is still leaky, making it a tempting option to add more defensive depth once the next transfer market opens.

Thulani Hlatshwayo is continuing to prove to be one of the best centre backs in the league right now, while Kaizer Chiefs' Siyanda Xulu hasn't been getting much game time and could be tempted to move across Soweto.

Who do you think Pirates should add to their roster for the 2017/18 season?
