And while speculation over Hlatshwayo's future died down when he penned a new three-year deal with Wits in March, Pirates have not given up on recruiting the Bafana Bafana centre-back.

According to a source close to the Clever Boys, Bucs have offered a few players to their rivals in exchange for 'Tyson'.

"Pirates are trying to push the deal. But Wits are not keen at the moment," says the informant.

"There is still time and nothing is impossible."
