VIDEO: KERMIT SHARES THREE WORDS ABOUT PIRATES RETURN
At the start of the new season, Pirates are viewed by many as the only club looking likely to potentially challenge Mamelodi Sundowns for the title this season, and the Bucs certainly made some key power plays to further bolster their squad even further.
As the transfer deadline drew towards a close at midnight on Thursday, Pirates officially announced the signing of talented Ndabayithethwa Ndlondlo. The 27-year-old joins the Buccaneers on a three-year deal for an undisclosed fee from Marumo Gallants.
On Friday morning, Pirates confirmed the recruitment of Kermit Erasmus on a two-year deal. Romeo, as he is affectionately known, returns to the club having left to join French outfit Stade Rennais back in 2016.
The experienced forward joins the Buccaneers having recently been cleared by his former employer and becomes the sixth senior signing of the season.
It also shouldn’t be overlooked that in the statement related to Erasmus, Pirates also confirmed the signing of goalkeeper Sipho Chaine. The 25-year-old signs from Chippa United on a three-year deal.
