Orlando Pirates

Good Business? Bucs Exits & Arrivals So Far…

Orlando Pirates have been by far the busiest in the transfer market compared to their Absa Premiership title rivals ahead of the 2019/20 season.

The Buccaneers have so far signed nine players – two short of the total number from the previous campaign – though they still have until the end of August to bring in more reinforcements as they target Bidvest Wits captain Thulani Hlatshwayo and Asante Kotoko's Yacouba Songne.

Pirates haven’t just recruited, however. Coach Micho Sredojevic has also said goodbye to 15 players, some who have gone out on loan for a second successive season and others – like Thamsanqa Gabuza – who were surprise departures.  

It’s expected that a few more could still be heading out on loan as Pirates continue to trim their squad.

Here are the Buccaneers’ new arrivals and departures so far…

In:

Joris Delle (Feyenoord, Holland), Tebogo Tlolane (Chippa United), Bongani Sam, Kabelo Dlamini, Tshegofatso Mabasa (all from Bloemfontein Celtic), Siphesihle Ndlovu, Fortune Makaringe (both Maritzburg United), Austin Muwowo (Nkana FC, Zambia), Gabadinho Mhango (Bidvest Wits)

Out:

Jackson Mabokgwane, Thabo Qalinge, Ayanda Nkosi, Mpho Makola (all unattached), Gladwin Shitolo (Golden Arrows), Sandile Mthethwa, Diamond Thopola, Meshack Maphangule (all to Chippa United), Marcelo (went back to Brazil), Thabo Matlaba (Black Leopards), Themba Sikhakhane (AmaZulu), Abbubaker Mobara (Cape Town City), Marshall Munetsi (Reims, France), Kudakwashe Mahachi, Thamsanqa Gabuza (both SuperSport United)

Returning from loan, but with future still to be decided: 

Tercious Malepe, Phetso Maphanga (Chippa United), Lehlohonolo Mtshali (Jomo Cosmos), Zakhele Lepasa (TS Galaxy), Siphumelele Mbulu (Witbank Spurs), Brian Hlongwa (Real Kings), Yusuf Maart (Cape Umoya United)
