Orlando Pirates are looking into buying Ajax Cape Town and Bafana Bafana international defender Rivaldo Coetzee to bolster their defence. 

Bucs are still without a full-time coach after Muhsin Ertugral’s resignation, and have put Augusti Palacious in charge on an interim basis. It has emerged that Pirates were initially looking to buy the 20-year-old, but failed to acquire his signature.

They instead went for Riyaard Norodien and Abbubaker Mobara.
