DONE DEALS| Orlando Pirates Completes The Signing Of Ajax Center Back

Shane Saralina, a left-footed center back, has been signed by the Orlando Pirates


Remember Shane Saralina, the Ajax Cape Town left-footed center defender? He has now completed his dream move to the Orlando Pirates. 


THE ORLANDO PIRATES HAVE SIGNED A FORMER AJAX CAPE TOWN STAR. 


The 25-year-old Tafelsig native and Ajax Cape Town academy product has been identified among the club's new signings, albeit he has yet to be officially acknowledged. 


The central defender turned left back has followed an unusual route to the top. 


Saralina made his debut at Ajax as an 18-year-old before moving on to the National First Division with Cape Umoya. 


He later moved to Glandene United in the ABC Motsepe League before joining Orlando Pirates' development squad, Pele Pele, in the same league. 


Saralina impressed the club enough to obtain a first-team deal with the senior PSL team. 


"Former South Africa youth international Shane Saralina has joined the Orlando Pirates' first-team squad ahead of next season," iDiskiTimes' Lorenz Kohler wrote. 


"After reuniting with Pele Pele in the same division following the unsuccessful campaign in Western Cape, the player appears to be on the mend and has been training with the Pirates first squad for several months." 


"iDiski Times can now disclose he's officially landed a first-team contract with the Buccaneers, with the left-footed centre-back ready to give depth to their new-look defense next season," according to the report. 


DEFENCE WITH A NEW APPEARANCE 


Saralina, the team's lone left-footed center defender, will play alongside new number fives Xoki and Sibisi. The trio replaces Thulani Hlatshwayo, Nstikelelelo Nyauza, and Kwanda Mngonyama, who have all left the Orlando Stadium.
