Orlando Pirates: Three signings so far!- Report

Orlando Pirates are out the tracks in terms of player movements with half a dozen exits and half of these players have already been replaced.

Orlando Pirates have reportedly already wrapped up their third signing of the season.

So, let’s take a look at the newest Bucs players.

PIRATES REPORTED SIGNINGS SO FAR

Pirates are expected to trigger the clause in SuperSport loanee, Thalente Mbatha’s contract. Thus, making him a Bucs player.

Meanwhile, English man Tremaine Eastmond has left a lasting impression after his trials at Mayfair. In fact, he stands in line to make his unofficial debut against Sevilla in Pirates’ pre-season tour of Europe.

“He (Eastmond) is a talented youngster, and he left a lasting impression at the club (Pirates) during his trial. There is a possibility for him to be signed,” SoccerLaduma reported.

Meanwhile, the Soweto giants have reportedly already signed Kaizer Chiefs target, Keagan Johannes.

“Keagan Johannes is said to have already put pen to paper,” the report read on SNL.

Therefore, all three men are said to be announced shortly by Pirates.

MORE BUCS EXITS, MORE SIGNINGS COMING

13 Pirates players are linked with exits. Currently, SIX more Pirates players are set to be released.

Meanwhile, SEVEN Bucs players are linked with loan moves.

Therefore, several signings will be made in the next few weeks. Currently, Pirates have prioritized appointing a new coach above signing players. Thereafter, their attention will turn to building squad depth. The Soweto giants will be returning to the CAF Champions League next season. Moreover, they want to end Mamelodi Sundowns PSL dominance. Therefore, squad depth and quality signings will be key.
