Six Players That Could Sign For Pirates
Big Name Players Linked With Orlando Pirates
Orlando Pirates are being linked with some of the top players in the PSL, as the team is expected to make reinforcements for next season.
With the 2017/18 season nearing its final stages, The Buccaneers will have players leaving and some joining the team, like any other team in the league.
With Milutin Sredojevic and his team out of the Nedbank Cup, Bucs are now left with only the league title to compete for, with seven matches remaining. Failure to win the league title will mean that another season without a trophy for Pirates.

As next season will be a second for Sredojevic in charge of Bucs’ technical bench, the Serbian will want improvements in the team’s results and for them to win trophies.
As part of the plans to improve the team, Pirates will be expected to make additions to their current squad.
One player linked with Bucs in recent times is Brilliant Khuzwayo from Kaizer Chiefs. The goalkeeper is nearing the end of his contract with Chiefs, as his current deal will expire in June.
While Chiefs are believed to have offered the shot-stopper a contract extension, there have been no developments in that aspect, as the Umlazi-born player has been reluctant to sign a new deal in Naturena.
As things stand, it seems like all that the player wants is to see out his contract at Naturena and move on at the end of the season. Earlier this year, reports in local media indicated Khuzwayo might have signed a pre-contract with Pirates.
With the player sometimes showing his frustration about lack of game-time at Chiefs on social media, he is again being linked with a move to Pirates.
A few other top PSL players are linked with Pirates to join the likes of Xola Mlambo, Justin Shonga and Augustine Mulenga, who are some of the players signed by the Soweto giants.
