Ernst Middendorp, who was ready to complete the 2022/23 campaign without new signings, will be happy to welcome new players to his squad to help the team fight relegation.

They have now announced the addition of Buccaneers left-back Sam, who spent the first half of the season on loan at Maritzburg but seemingly wasn’t in the plans of Fadlu Davids.

“The Dube Birds would love to Welcome Bongani Sam to the Nest… The Dube Birds would love to thank Orlando Pirates for the smooth negotiations,” the club said via a statement.

Sam joined the club on a six-month loan deal, iDiski Times has learnt.
