Bucs Complete Brazilian Signing?
Orlando Pirates sign Brazilian defender Caio Marcelo?
The Siya crew understands that Orlando Pirates have signed the Brazilian centre back, Caio Marcelo.
As previously reported, the 20-year-old defender along with countryman goalkeeper, Pepe Nunes were training with Pirates for the duration of the pre-season and even travelled with the club to Zambia.
According to sources, the defender has penned a deal with the Soweto giants.
“I can tell you that the team has already begun working on finalising his work permit, as a deal has been tabled. He will be a fully-fledged player in the upcoming season,” said the source.
Meanwhile, it remains to be seen whether Nunes will be handed a deal by the Buccaneers as Pirates have recently bolstered their goalkeeping department with former Kaizer Chiefs shot-stopper, Brilliant Khuzwayo.
