Orlando Pirates on Wednesday bolstered their playing squad when they announced the signing of midfielder Thabang Monare as a free agent on a two-year deal.
"The 31-year-old who spent four seasons at the Clever Boys, comes in to bolster the midfield where the Buccaneers will be contesting in a compressed 2020/21 season which includes the CAF Confederations Cup," a club statement said.
"I am happy to have signed with the Club," Monare said. "I hope, like I have done in my entire career, I can make a meaningful contribution during my time here. I think this is a team that suits my style of play and that can only benefit me and the team for the season ahead."
Acquiring the signature of one of South Africa's premium midfielders is a major capture for the Soweto giants and becomes the club's sixth signing ahead of the 2020/2021 Premiership season.
The Buccaneers have so far signed Wayde Jooste (29), Collins Makgaka (24), Terrence Dzvukamanja (26), Deon Hotto (29) and Thulani Hlatshwayo (30). With the latter three players all signed from the now-defunct Bidvest Wits.
Monare has made 124 appearances for the Clever Boys over four years and has lifted a league title and Nedbank Cup trophy.
