Orlando Pirates have signed highly-rated Niger national team midfielder Boubacar Talatou.
The Niger international has signed a three-year contract with Bucs and will start training with the team after Niger's Afcon qualifier against Egypt this coming weekend. "I'm very pleased to have joined Orlando Pirates. This is a very successful club with a great history and heritage," the 22-year-old midfielder told Bucs' website. Bafana Bafana midfielder Thanduyise Khuboni says Talatou is a great signing for Pirates, having played against Talatou in the Afcon qualifier games this year. "He is a top player and one of the best players in the Niger National team. I played against him and he was all over our defence coming both behind the striker and on the wings. I think he is great signing for Pirates," says Khuboni. What do you think of Bucs' new signing? Have your say HERE!
