Deadline Day saw three major PSL transfers go through to bring a close to the extended winter window.
Here’s a recap. If you see a Pirates fan smiling today, you’ll probably know why after reading this.
PSL transfers: Deadline day recap
Lyle Lakay: Sundowns to Cape Town City
This is a move that makes a lot of sense for all three parties. Lakay is now third-choice left-back for the Brazilians with the talented Terrence Mashego having arriving at the club from Cape Town City. The additional presence of Sifiso Ngobeni made Lakay’s prospects of first-team minutes even slimmer.
Abdelmounaim Boutouil: SC Mohammedia to Sundowns
24-year-old Boutouil will make history by becoming the first Moroccan to play in the PSL. A noteworthy achievement indeed, and Sundowns fans will be excited to get a glimpse of their new “defensive rock” in action.
Ndabayithethwa Ndlondlo: Gallants to Orlando Pirates
Orlando Pirates pulled off a coup in the market by nabbing 27-year-old midfield schemer Ndabayithethwa Ndlondlo from Marumo Gallants. He immediately upgrades Jose Riveiro’s options in the centre of the park and adds some much-needed creative spark.
Who was the winner of the winter window? Pirates and Sundowns definitely got some cracking business done, and the same can be said for newcomers Richards Bay FC.
