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.

If the lad is good why are we wasting time in signing him. why the wait. I do no think that we will match Sundowns on lebusa so lets take the Brazilian lad.

Fellow Masandawana, the beloved Yellow Nation, may you please help investigate - how many players has RATS signed so far? I have lost the count, it might be a troop of confused bunch of cows. Please share with me.
