Sekhukhune United striker Thabang Sibanyoni finds himself a wanted man, with Orlando Pirates reportedly joining the pursuit of the target man.

Sibanyoni’s club faces an uncertain future despite celebrating what they feel is hard-earned promotion this week. They will need to wait to see if they will go straight up to the Premiership next season or endure the promotion-relegation battle.

Sibanyoni is wanted by Orlando Pirates

Soccer Laduma have reported that Sibanyoni is wanted by Orlando Pirates with the player already on the radar of Amazulu.

Goal-shy Orlando Pirates are desperate to acquire a proven goalscorer to remedy their final third headaches.

Sibanyoni has shared the goalscoring responsibilities at Sekhukune with Katlego Cwinyane and Prince Nxumalo, with each bagging half a dozen goals in the club’s efforts to win promotion.

Misfiring Orlando Pirates need a proven goalscorer

At Orlando Pirates, Gabadinho Mhango, Tshegofatso Mabasa, Terrence Dzvukamanja, Zakhele Lepasa have struggled to convert their chances while Jean-Marc Makusu has seemingly been exiled.

Sibanyoni’s contract with Sekhukhune expires on June 30 which means the striker can already sign a pre-contract with the club of his choice.

Nxumalo also linked to Amazulu

Amazulu have also been linked with 31-year-old former Baroka FC striker Nxumalo. Nxumalo is a native of KwaZulu-Natal and might be a perfect fit for Usuthu.

“The owner of the club in KZN recently asked about his health complications that he had while he was at Ajax (Cape Town) and sounded interested when he heard he had since fully recovered from the fits that he suffered from,” a source told the Citizen in early May.

Sekhukhune United believe the court will declare them rightful GladAfrica Championship champions, and have threatened to escalate the matter to the Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS) if needs be.
