Khuzwayo, who will be officially out of Kaizer Chiefs at the end expiry of his contract at the end of the month, has been strongly linked with a move to the Buccaneers.

While reports in local media have emerged that the goalkeeper has already signed for Bucs, the club is saying otherwise so far.

According to sources, the 28-year-old shot-stopper was recently spotted at Bucs, with an indication that a three-year deal might have been discussed between the parties for his move to the club.

Khuzwayo is seen as an ideal addition to coach Milutin Sredojevic’s squad that will be returning to the CAF Champions League, following their second place finish on the PSL log this past season.

While Mamelodi Sundowns and a few other PSL clubs have previously been linked with the Umlazi-born goalkeeper, Pirates are believed to be the favourites to conclude a deal with the player, according to sources in the know, although the club is still waiting on the management to finalise and confirm for the deal to be complete.

Contacted for comment, Bucs’ technical director Stanley ‘Screamer’ Tshabalala told the Siya crew that the management hasn’t yet confirmed any deal with Khuzwayo.

“I understand why you are asking, but what I can tell you is that I don’t know anything about that. We also read about it that the boy this and that but the chairman hasn’t told me anything about any of that. If the chairman hasn’t said anything then it means there isn’t anything,” Tshabalala told the Siya crew.

Bucs might have to reshuffle in their goalkeeping department, which consists of the likes of Siyabonga Mpontshane, Jackson Mabokgwane and Wayne Sandilands, should Khuzwayo’s deal be completed.

“What I know is that there will be an announcement (about all the new signings) in a press conference. It will be from the press conference that all the reporters and everybody will know,” concluded Tshabalala, who is an experienced club official.
