Bucs Hint At Surprise Signing Before Deadline
Orlando Pirates hint at completing a marquee signing before transfer deadline
With just hours before the transfer window deadline, Orlando Pirates have hinted at a surprise singing that could be revealed either today or tomorrow.
Siya sources have confirmed that the Buccaneers could secure a marquee signing before the closure of the current transfer window.
The Crew has reported that Pirates have sent out the likes of defender Ayanda Gcaba and Riyaad Norodien to Platinum Stars for the remainder of the season. Furthermore, Soccer Laduma also reported on the Soweto giants having signed Zambian striker Augustine Mulenga from Zanaco FC.
However, of all the signings Pirates have concluded to date, the club has not made what can be classified as a marquee signing. Among the possible big-money deals that have been mentioned in circles close to Pirates have included the likes of Bidvest Wits' Thulani Hlatshwayo and a possible return of former midfielder Andile Jali. Another name touted as a possible target for the Bucs is Bidvest Wits' Ben Motshwari.
“The transfer window is not yet closed and there could be one or two surprises left for the club to conclude and reveal,” said the Siya source.
As always the Crew will keep you updated on transfer matters till until the cut-off time.
