Johannesburg – Orlando Pirates have bolstered their squad ahead of the 2020/21 season with the additions of Thulani ‘Tyson’ Hlatshwayo and Deon Hotto from the now liquidated Bidvest Wits on long-term deals.
The acquisition of Hlatshwayo comes after a long-held interest in the Bafana Bafana captain. The defender joins having amassed over 300 matches and leading the Clever Boys to their only league title in 2017.
Hotto will move to the Soweto giants after being a consistent performer in the Premier Soccer League (PSL) over the past few seasons.
“We are pleased to welcome Thulani [Hlatshwayo] and Deon [Hotto] to the Club,” said club chairperson Irvin Khoza.
“These are two players who have a proven pedigree both at club and international level and we are confident that they will complement the team that we have assembled. I must thank all those who were involved in the negotiations.”
