Thursday proved to be a relatively quiet transfer deadline day, with most teams having conducted their business early thanks to the extended window.

Barring Mamelodi Sundowns, who confirmed the signing of Moroccan defender Abdelmounaim Boutouil, it was Pirates who pulled off the biggest surprise of the day.

The Buccaneers completed the signing of Ndabayithethwa Ndlondlo from Marumo Gallants in what came as a complete shock; however, that was not the only business the Buccaneers conducted on the day.

As reported by the Siya crew, Pirates had been circling Lloyd Kazapua of Chippa United. But it was Kazapua’s teammate Sipho Chaine who made the switch to Parktown instead.

The 25-year-old, who joined Chippa United from Royal AM at the start of the season was snapped up by the Buccaneers and is expected to be announced in due course.
