Orlando Pirates will do everything in their power to strengthen the squad for the 2017/18 season with quality players during this transfer window.

Read: Pirates Announce First Big Signing Of The Season

Following a disappointing 2016/17 Absa Premiership season for Bucs, which has seen the team concede 40 goals, one of the areas that the club will need to strengthen is the defence.

Pirates finished the season in 11th place on the PSL log with 33 points, just five points out of the relegation zone.

In their aim to bring back glory days to the club, The Buccaneers have started adding quality to the team, following the completion of Thamsanqa Sangweni’s signing from Chippa United.

As reported in issue 1030 of Soccer Laduma, Bucs have their sights on Thulani Hlatshwayo from Bidvest Wits. Tyson has been identified as a potential marquee signing for Bucs, following his impressive performances for Wits on their way to winning the league this past season.

The Bafana Bafana defender captained the Students to their league and MTN8 cup double this past season and has also been chosen as Bafana captain under the new coach, Stuart Baxter.  

According to sources close to Bucs, Hlatshwayo has been identified as a player who can finally replace former club captains Lucky Lekgwathi and Siyabonga Sangweni in the team, with both his performances and leadership qualities taken into consideration.  

Both Lekgwathi and Sangweni have not yet been successfully replaced at Bucs since the duo retired from professional football months ago.

Meanwhile, Gavin Hunt and his technical team at Wits have been assessing outgoing Platinum Stars centre back, Rofhiwa Tshikovhi, with a view of possibly adding him to the squad.

Khoza, when he is in the right mood knows which players fit Pirates and those players goes on to win trebles, he can buy any player without a problem and Bring along the Technical team that can bring trebles BT He seems to be reluctant of our sadness. I wish one day one ambitious Multimillionaire or a Billionaire buy Pirates, we have lost the Pride and Dignity of the team. He chased Senzo Mazingisa away and re-hired the failure Flody Mbele, He made the situation worse by bringing his friend Screamer along.Khoza leave Pirates to someone who loves it, don't dent our heart with these actions of yours.What happened to the players that won Champions League n those who won double treble, why they are not the part of the Technical team. Khoza please ship out or shape up,We love Pirates a lot, don't make it look like its there to sustain your other Businesses. To us it is our love and joy Big man. We want happiness and joy only for it.

Khoza we need to reinforce the whole defense,get(Lebusa,Hlatshwayo, Coetzee or Nsabayimva n Mzikayise Mashaba)n get 1 central midfielder (Mlambo or Phalane), 1 playmaker(Obinna Nwobodo)-Get Chabalala back from loan- I can see u still believe in players n coach (Kjell 'copy & paste' Jonevret)that failed us bt buy quality players to add stiff competition to the automatic players inclusion eg Manyisa,Makola,Jele,Rakhale,Sa rr n company.
