Pirates & Kalaba Deal To Be Finalised

Orlando Pirates and TP Mazembe are expected to finalise a deal with midfielder Rainford Kalaba before the start of the 2013 African Cup of Nations on January 19. 

The Siya crew revealed in issue 800 of Soccer-Laduma that Orlando Pirates are closing in on Kalaba's signature, and it now seems that the club is in the final stages of negotiations.
 
The Zambian, who was also on Mamelodi Sundowns' wanted list, is believed to have agreed to a three-year deal with the Buccaneers, but the two teams have yet to agree terms. 
 
A Soccer-Laduma source close to Pirates revealed that the deal is almost done and just a few loose ends needs to be tied down. 
 
"It will be finalised by the time the Afcon starts, the deal would have been concluded. The chairman is expected to meet TP Mazembe's chairman Katumbi Chapwe in the next few days to finalise negotiations, but I can't say much about the details right now. The player was offered a three year deal by Pirates," confirmed the source.
