Bucs have bolstered their squad for the second half of the season, with the following astute signings

Orlando Pirates on Thursday confirmed the signings of Chippa United duo Diamond Thopola and Phetso Maphanga.

The players join with immediate effect and will team up with the rest of the squad when they resume for training on December 27, the club revealed.

Maphanga is tipped to be a similar type of player to current captain Thabo Matlaba, while Thopola is a no-nonsense type of a player.

The deal sees crowd favourite Thabo Rakhale go the other way, and will team up with former teammates Brighton Mhlongo, Sello Japhta and James Okwuosa.
