News reaching the Siya crew is that former Bloemfontein Celtic midfielder Jacky Motshegwa has signed for Orlando Pirates.
Motshegwa has been training with Pirates for some time and there have been reports indicating that he is still trying to convince the Bucs technical team that he can add value to the squad.
However, the Siya crew can reveal that Motshegwa has indeed signed for the Buccaneers.
Pirates coach Roger de Sa confirmed to the Siya crew that the 25-year-old midfielder has signed, although would not go into the details of Motshegwa’s contract.
“As far as I know, Jacky is a Pirates player. He has been registered with the club and that’s why he has been training with us, but for more details on his contract, you must speak to the Pirates management,” De Sa told the Siya crew.
Motshegwa joins Ghanaian goalkeeper Fatau Dauda, Lennox Bacela, from Bloemfontein Celtic, and former Platinum Stars winger Joseph Molangoane in the new list of players from Pirates.
Orlando Pirates and Kaizer Chiefs will clash on July 27, with the title of 2013 Carling Black Label Cup champions up for grabs.
