Orlando Pirates veteran keeper set to join TS Galaxy?

Orlando Pirates are reportedly set to cut ties with goalkeeper Siyabonga Mpontshane.

Mpontshane is expected to be replaced by TS Galaxy goalkeeper Melusi Buthelezi. On the other hand, Mpontshane looks set to replace Buthelezi at Galaxy!

I guess it’s that time of the year! Clubs are rushing to fill in their gaps while others are getting rid of their surplus players.

And so this deal makes perfect sense for both Mpontshane and TS Galaxy! According to reports, the deal is 80% complete.

“As it stands now, it’s almost a done deal. I can say it’s over 80% done.” an insider told SoccerLaduma.

“The management and technical team have agreed that after losing Buthelezi, Mpontshane would be the right replacement or cover in that department.

“No, it’s not a swap deal or something like that. The Melusi (Buthelezi) deal was done and completed and this one is a separate one as it’s between the player and the club.”

MELUSI BUTHELEZI has reportedly signed for Orlando Pirates and is expected to be unveiled by the club ahead of next season.

In other news, Kaizer Chiefs are reportedly keeping tabs on Brandon Truter’s situation at Sekhukhune United ahead of a potential move to Naturena.

United qualified via their Nedbank Cup finalists performance. The club also finished in the top eight.

Arthur Zwane’s maiden season on the other hand in charge of the Glamour Boys was largely underwhelming.

The former academy coach crashed out of both the MTN8 and Nedbank Cup at the semi-final stages in each competition.

Kaizer Chiefs also finished in fifth position in the DStv Premiership, missing out on both the CAF Champions League and CAF Confederations Cup.

According to the latest reports, the Glamour Boys are considering taking a co-coaching approach and Truter is being monitored!

“Kaizer Chiefs has been monitoring the progress of Brandon Truter with interest. The thought of him strengthening their technical team has been bandied about.” a source told SoccerLaduma.

“The club isn’t considering firing Arthur Zwane just yet but need some­one with experience to work with him.

“There is also Polokwane City that is interested in Truter. The club is prepared to offer him big money to coach the team in their first season back in the topflight.

“There is an option on Truter’s con­tract at Sekhukhune, but it has not yet been activated.”
