Players Pirates Are Said To Be Interested In

Orlando Pirates' business in the transfer market is not over yet, and they are still linked with a few players. Can you name them? 

Muhsin Ertugral's side reportedly snapped up three players from Free State Stars last week, and Dr Irvin Khoza has come out to declare that their shopping is not yet over.

In fact, Pirates are reportedly on the prowl for a new goalkeeper, while a versatile defensive midfielder is said to be another category of footballer they are after.

Today, we take a look at which players the Sea Robbers are still interested in luring to Mayfair. 

Sherwyn Naicker
The goalkeeper couldn't save Jomo Cosmos from relegation last season, but he did prove to be a vital asset for Ezenkosi. At 25, Naicker's best keeping years are still ahead of him, and he would do well learning alongside Brighton Mhlongo.

Thamsanqa Sangweni
The deep-lying midfielder has long been linked with a move to Orlando Pirates, and with former stalwart Siyabonga Sangweni as his older brother, Bucs are the favourites to land his signature. The only snag that lies in Dr Irvin Khoza's way is whether or not Chippa United will still conduct deals with the club after the James Okwuosa mess-up. 

Jackson Mabokgwane
The goalkeeper is said to be the Soweto giants' first choice keeper target, and he has been tipped to possibly replace Siyabonga Mpontshane between the posts. Reports have also suggested that Tshepo Gumede may be used as a part of a swap deal between them and Cape Town City FC.

Which player do you want to see most at Pirates?
