Kaizer Chiefs and Or­lando Pi­rates are both bat­tling for the services of tal­ented left winger, Vin­cent Pule, who will leave Bid­vest Wits at the end of the month. Pule’s agent, Tim Sukazi of Qual­ity Tal­ent Sports, con­firmed that Chiefs and Pi­rates have shown in­ter­est in land­ing his client.

“He is def­i­nitely leav­ing Wits. We told them last year in Oc­to­ber that the boy is leav­ing when his con­tract ex­pires at the end of the sea­son. We told Wits be­fore the Telkom Knock­out fi­nal. Chiefs and Pi­rates are in­ter­ested in him,” Sukazi said with­out any doubts.

Amakhosi didn’t re­place Ge­orge Lebese with an out and out left winger when he de­par­tured and joined Mamelodi Sun­downs. Ed­more Chi­ram­badare who can op­er­ate as a left winger is set to be loaned out for the new sea­son. This will leave Chiefs with the age­ing Siphiwe Tsha­bal­ala as the only op­tion on the left. On other hand, Pi­rates have Lu­vuyo Memela - who has es­tab­lished him­self as an at­tack­ing left winger. Memela needs com­pe­ti­tion and Pule can cer­tainly bring that el­e­ment in to Bucs set-up.

“I’m away in Limpopo this week. We will sit down with him and he will take the deci- sion. As I speak to you, he hasn’t signed any con­tract with any­one.” Sukazi elab­o­rated. Pi­rates have been busy in this trans­fer win­dow. They have al­ready ac­quired the services of Abel Mabaso and Paseko Mako from Chippa United and are in talks about sign­ing Linda Mn­tambo. Ku­dak­washe Ma­hachi will also be ply­ing his trade in Park­town come next sea­son, hav­ing agreed to join Pi­rates in Jan­uary while still ply­ing his trade at Goolden Ar­rows. Pi­rates will be com­pet­ing in five com­pe­ti­tions next sea­son. They will be cam­paign­ing in the MTN 8, Telkom Knock­out, Ned­bank Cup, Absa Pre­mier­ship and the Caf Cham­pi­ons League.
