Orlando Pirates potential transfer target has signed a new contract with his club Cape Town City?

During the 2020/21 campaign although Orlando Pirates acquired the signings of probably at the time one of South Africa's top defensive stars in Thulani Hlatshwayo

They were still burdened with consistent defensive issues and consistent defensive erros despite the presence of Thulani Hlatshwayo at the heart of the defense

The Orlando Pirates defenisve maestro was at the centre of those defensive erros himself as he looked a shadow of the player he once was at the now reformed and renamed Bidvest Wits

And of course that could be down to a number of factors and a number of issues as well whether he probably needs another quick and intelligent defensive partner alongside him

Which is one of the reasons as well why maybe Orlando Pirates although the transfer window has closed have probably looked at a number of top defenders around the country

And one of those defenisve stars has been Cape Town City defender Taariq Flielies who has also established himself as one of the best defenders in South African Football for probably the past three seasons or so

It is also worth noting as well that Kaizer Chiefs have in the past been interested in signing Taariq Flielies although that particular interest was still hot during the days of Gavin Hunt at the club

Most recently it also seemed that Orlando Pirates has revived their interest in Taariq Flielies but unfortunately the defender has now renewed his contract with his current club Cape Town City according to & courtesy of reports from

"Yeah, I'm happy to have signed a new contract with the club, and I'm very delighted about that,"

"And yeah, I'm here to here to help the team. Obviously we reached another final so I'm happy for that as well. So yeah, we can just build on from this as well,"

From an experience point of view for Orlando Pirates the acquisition of Taariq Flielies would have made absolute sense as he would and could have made the ideal defensive partner for Thulani Hlatshwayo
