Davids reveals 'great signings' for Pirates in transfer window


Co-coach Fadlu Davids on Thursday outlined the "great signings" that Orlando Pirates will add during the transfer window to give the club a major boost.

The Buccaneers were held to a goalless draw by Baroka FC in a DStv Premiership clash at Orlando Stadium to be 11 points adrift the league summit in 7th position.

Speaking after the final whistle, Davids revealed that his side was looking forward to some key additions to the squad during the upcoming transfer window.

"I think this transfer window we'll get some great signings," Davids said post-match.

"And that will be internally if you take Vincent Pule being back if you take Thembinkosi Lorch being back and Lepasa being back or Richard Ofori being back.

"Let's be honest, Lepasa, Lorch and Pule are our starting front-three and it's clear that we're missing them.

"So that's the boost we'll get in January with all our main players coming back.

"Maela is also back now who is a starting line-up player who is just getting his fitness back and passing his minimal requirements.

"He got some minutes in the away leg in the CAF Confederation Cup.

"So more than us needing to strengthen in areas, we'll soon be back to full-strength and especially in our front movement.

"Any team, if you take Liverpool and take out Salah, Mane and Firmino it's not going to have that fluidity in terms of scoring goals and creating.

"So not really externally but internally our players getting back will give our squad a huge boost having everybody available for the second round."
