PSL : Orlando Pirates Nigerian Keeper Emmanuel Daniel could be let go
Nigerian GoalKeeper Emmanuel Daniel who is yet to make his debut could let go by Orlando Pirates
Emmanuel Daniel who joined Orlando Pirates from Nigerian side Enugu Rangers is likely to be let go in this transfer window.
Daniel competed with Brighton Mhlongo, Jackson Mabokgwane, and Siyabonga Mpontshane for the No.1 jersey at the Buccaneers
Daniel got his first call up to the senior Nigeria side for a 2018 FIFA World Cup qualifier against Zambia in October 2016.
Daniel impressive performances for Enugu Rangers and the Nigeria U23 team earned a big move to Pirates. It is believed that at that time Mamelodi Sundowns were also interested in his services.
He came in as the fourth keeper never played a game but made it to the bench only. Currently, Orlando Pirates has six goalkeepers with the new inclusion of Xolani Ngcobo from Thanda Royal Zulu, while Brington Mhlongo was sent on a season long loan to Chippa United
If the speculation is true then he will join the likes Equatorial Guinean Felipe Ovono and Ghanaian Fatawu Dauda as top continental keepers who didn’t make any impact at Orlando Pirates and were let go
Orlando Pirates parted ways with Ghanaian midfielder Edwin Gyimah. His departure opened one space in Bucs’ foreign quota for the season 2016/17, which the club used to strengthen the goalkeeping department.
Orlando Pirates needs space to accommodate Murushid Juuko who is rumoured to in the country already ready to sign for the Buccaneers
