Mokoena’s brilliant displays are said to have attracted the interest of the Buccaneers’ technical team and a deal could be on the cards.

“Mokoena has had a good season and his height makes him a perfect fit for what Pirates are looking for. He takes care of his defensive duties with ease and also attacks like a natural,” said a source.

He added that although contact has not been made between the two sides regarding Mokoena, it could be done and completed before the transfer window closes on January 31.
