Orlando Pirates fans are licking their lips in anticipation, following the news that Bafana Bafana captain, Thulani Hlatshwayo has commented on a possible move to their team.
Local media has been abuzz following Tyson’s comments after Wits’ 1-0 win over Polokwane City on Wednesday.
The Clever Boys’ captain admitted that although he is contracted to the team from Braamfontein, he is looking for a new challenge in his career.
These comments have left Buccaneers fans on edge, more especially after their leaky defence conceded three goals as they succumbed to defeat at the hands of SuperSport United.
Although Pirates’ defence currently boast the likes of captain Happy Jele, Alfred Ndengane and Justice Chabalala, they could well do with the addition of the 29-year-old who not only brings experience and stability to the team, he could also bolster their domestic as well as their CAF Champions league ambitions.
While a faction of Bucs supporters believe the potential addition of Tyson to the current Bucs squad would be a hand-in-glove fit, there are others who believe that it would be in the player’s best interest to remain at Wits.

“Tyson just remain at Wits for your own sake. They are treating u well and u are Bafana captain. The moment you move into Bucs' nest it will be over. Don't make that mistake.”

“A quality defender like Tyson must play in the CAF Champions League. Pirates is the right team for him. Come join the Sea Robbers.”

Do you think a move to Pirates would be the right one for Hlatshwayo?
