Former Orlando Pirates striker Patrick Malokase reckons Maritzburg United defender Siyanda Xulu would be a valuable addition for Bucs.

The 28-year-old's future at the Team of Choice is in doubt due to the fact that his current contract will expire in June and he has consequently been linked with moves elsewhere.

Pirates are one of the teams to be linked with a move for Xulu before next season and Malokase believes it could be a prudent transfer for the Soweto giants.

"It's very important for him to be open and clear that he has received an offer from Pirates but it's sad that we notice this thing about South African clubs. Once you disclose then they don't field you - I don't know why," Malokase told Goal.

"Probably Maritzburg are counting on him for the next season because of his experience. In my honest opinion, I think he can make an impact at Pirates.

"Siyanda is a good player there's no doubt about his qualities. He'll be a good addition for Pirates. Having good players is always good for the club and always good for competition. That can motivate other players to pull up their socks.

"As players, you need that motivation to pull up their socks. It will be good for Pirates to have him. They are doing well as a team lately especially in defence but it's always a good move to sign a good player and stabilise things.

"I don't see any problems for him going there and for the club. It’s going to bring good competition for the defenders."
