Orlando Pirates sign Motshegwa from Bloem Celtic

Pirates have bolstered their midfield department with the former Bloem Celtic man Jacky Motshegwa who signed a three-year contract

Former Bloem Celtic midfielder Jacky Motshegwa has completed his move to Orlando Pirates on a three-year contract.

Motshegwa became a free agent soon after being told by the Free State outfit that his contract would not be renewed, and then Pirates took advantage of the situation and convinced him to join them.

“Jacky’s deal is done and he will join the rest of the team on Monday. He signed a three-year contract with Pirates and official announcement will be made soon,” said our source.

Motshegwa is one of the new faces that will don the famous black and white colours of Pirates, and he joins Ghanaian goalkeeper Fatau Dauda who completed his move to Parktown about two weeks ago.

The Buccaneers have also captured the signature of former Platinum Stars speedy winger Joseph Malongoane who spent the last six months on loan to AmaZulu. He is also believed to have signed for three years with Pirates.

“Another local player signed is the former Platinum Stars winger Joseph Malongoane. He’s very talented and I think the coach will use him more often on the right hand side. He also signed a three-year deal,” added our source.

A few players are expected to leave Bucs and majority of those players won’t be part of Roger de Sa’s pre-season training starting on Monday.
