Orlando Pirates assessing DRC internationals Ungenda and Emomo

The two players were part of the DRC squad that took part in the 2014 Chan tournament in South Africa, and Pirates are interested in signing them

Goal has reliably been informed that Orlando Pirates are assessing two Democratic Republic of Congo players as they continue to reinforce their squad ahead of the new season.

Defender Bodrick Ungenda and striker Ngoyi Emomo have been training with the Buccaneers for a while now although the club hasn't spoken to them about possible contracts.

"Bodrick is a defender and he's here together with Emomo who plays as a striker and sometimes as a number 10, but they've not been signed," a source at Bucs told Goal.

According to our source, the two DRC internationals should know by next week whether they'll be offered contracts or not as Dr Irvin Khoza still has to deal with the issue of both Siyabonga Sangweni and Lucky Lekgwathi who are yet to extend their contracts.

"We should be in a position to know if they will be signed next week. The chairman still has to meet with Sangweni and Lucky first," added our source.

Pirates have only two foreign players on their books in Fatau Dauda and Helder Pelembe after releasing Collins Mbesuma at the end of last season.
