Orlando Pirates have welcomed their new signing to their training ground as he trained with the team ahead of this weekend’s Soweto derby.

Former Bloemfontein Celtic defender Alfred Ndengane was spotted training with the team ahead of Pirates next game.

Ndengane left Bloemfontein Celtic at the beginning of the month, as was confirmed from the Mangaung club but there is no official announcement from Orlando Pirates for his signature.

During a media open day for Pirates on Monday for this coming Saturday’s Absa Premiership match with Chiefs, Ndengane was seen training with Bucs’ players at Rand Stadium.

It is yet to be known if he would be in the match day squad when the two Soweto giants clash at the FNB stadium this Saturday.
