News reaching the Siya crew is that Keegan Allan from the University of Pretoria has become the latest player to have attracted interest from the Buccaneers and is being closely monitored by the club, according to sources. 

The 21-year-old Mamelodi Sundowns development product has been impressive for the Tshwane outfit and is one of the top performers in the GladAfrica Championship.

As reported by the Siya crew, the young centre-back turned down an opportunity to sign a long-term contract with Sundowns last year in favour of playing regular first team football with Tuks where he has been enjoying himself this season, while at the Brazilians he had been playing for the DStv Diski Challenge team.

Bucs are believed to be considering luring towering defender by offering him a first team contract to strengthen their defence.
