Orlando Pirates enter market for ex Sundowns starlet

Orlando Pirates had a fruitful season as they managed to reach the finals of the CAF Confederations Cup. 

According to sources at Pirates, they hope to build on that momentum for next season. 

That is why they are in the process of scouting for new players who are capable of adding value to the team. 

Their furst target is reportedly former Mamelodi Sundowns starlet Keegan Allan. 

Allan, who is currently with the University of Pretoria in the GladAfrica Championship, has been in scintillating form. 

“He is one of the young players who have shown a promise of becoming big players in the future and I believe Pirates were made aware of him and have been tracking him. 

“I heard they liked what they saw and could be making a big offer for him,” said a source. It is however interesting that Pirates would be interested in the 21-year-old right back when they have their own youngsters waiting in the wings. 

The likes of Neo Mahlong and Thabang Monyane have been doing well in the club’s DStv Diski Challenge team and are expected to be promoted to the first team.
