Bucs Target Tyson! Details Revealed…

It’s no secret that Orlando Pirates showed an interest in Bidvest Wits and Bafana Bafana skipper Thulani Hlatshwayo two years ago – and it has emerged that the Buccaneers never quite gave up the chase.

Pirates have dominated the headlines recently with their new arrivals, with many arguing that, so far, they are ahead of their Premier Soccer League rivals when it comes to playing personnel confirmed to date.

Joris Delle, Tebogo Tlolane, Bongani Sam, Fortune Makaringe, Siphesihle Ndlovu, Kabelo Dlamini, Gabadinho Mhango and Austin Muwowo are among the new arrivals at Pirates – but none of them are centre backs.

It is likely then that ‘Tyson’ could be the missing piece as coach Micho Sredojevic attempts to assemble a formidable team. Happy Jele and Alfred Ndengane are the club’s most notable centre backs and they are ageing, while Ntsikelelo Nyauza, Justice Chabalala and young Sandile Mthethwa have uncertain futures.     

The Siya crew – in today’s edition of Soccer Laduma – has all the details of how talks behind the scenes are shaping up for Hlatshwayo to make the switch before the close of the transfer window at the end of August.

The full details include:

  • Why Pirates have made ‘Tyson’ their top priority signing
  • What conversations have been had
  • Why Wits could sell their captain to Pirates
  • Mamelodi Sundowns were keen but…
  • Chiefs wanted the player on their own terms
  • Tyson’s relationship with Gavin Hunt
