Bucs Still Keen On Their Target?
Orlando Pirates Still Linked With Midfielder
Orlando Pirates are believed to still show interest in Jabulani Shongwe, as they did during the transfer window.
The Buccaneers could still land Shongwe in the next transfer window, according to sources in the know. Shongwe was linked with a move to both Pirates and Kaizer Chiefs during the off-season.
However, it was Golden Arrows who succeeded in clinching a deal for the talented player to move him away from Bidvest Wits. While the 27-year-old player is preparing for the season with his new teammates at Abafana Bes’thende, sources have revealed that Pirates will be monitoring his progress at the KwaZulu-Natal outfit with interest.
Sources close to Bucs have told the Siya crew that the club is still interested in Shongwe and that Bucs could make attempts to bring the player on board later in the season.
Depending on the player’s progress this season, Milutin Sredojevic’s side could attempt to sign Shongwe from Arrows in January, or at the end of the season.
Bucs’ interest in the former Mamelodi Sundowns player and other interesting Siyagobhoza stories are in edition 1039 of Soccer Laduma.
