The Buccaneers have been very active in the transfer market and had brought in a number of players and they needed to release some to create space for the new arrivals. The bulk of the new signings comes from Pirates and they include Luvuyo Memela who had been reportedly in talks for a new contract, Augustine Mulunga who had been part of new boys TTM, former Pirates striker Siphelele Mthembu, Limbikani Mzava from Highlands Park, Makhehleni Makhaula also from Highlands park. Others include Thembelani Sikhakhane from Orlando Pirates, Samkelo Mgwazela , Siphelele Nene, Sicelo Mkhize as well as the headliner Siphiwe Tshabalala who was a free agent.Former Kaizer Chiefs captain Siphiwe Tshabalala also comes in as a surprise having had a stint in Turkey, and was linked with a move back overseas. Media reports suggested that Shabba was on the verge on returning overseas with the intention of playing in the Chinese top tier league. Tshabalala has more PSL experience in the latest group to join Usuthu. The former Free State Stars and Chiefs captain has over 300 PSL appearances even though age is not on his side. Shabba joins Usuthu as a free agent. He has been without a club ever since his departure from his previous Turkish employers in 2019.
