Orlando Pirates confirm Majoro signs now

The Majoro transfer saga is finally over, with the former Bafana star agreeing a deal with Orlando Pirates to join up with the Soweto giants now. Goal spoke to Bucs management
Lehlohonolo Majoro had signed a pre-contract with Orlando Pirates, but after being released by Kaizer Chiefs, he was available and Bucs didn't waste much time to snap up his services immediately.

The former Chiefs forward is now Pirates property, signing a three and a half year deal with Bucs. The club's administrative manager Floyd Mbele spoke to Goal about the deal.

As a free agent, he was illegible to join any club but Mbele is glad to confirm Majoro can play for Pirates now.

"The player has now joined us and he signed a three and a half year deal with the club," Mbele told Goal.

The former Bafana Bafana striker will miss Bucs' titanic Absa Premiership clash against Mamelodi Sundowns on Tuesday night. 'Major' as he's affectionately known will start training with his new teammates later this week.

The official site of Orlando Pirates also confirms the deal.

"Orlando Pirates Football Club would like to confirm the signing of Lehlohonolo Majoro. Majoro joins the Mighty Buccaneers after the Club received a DRC Order declaring him a free agent," a statement on the club's website read.
