ICYMI: Best players to represent Kaizer Chiefs AND Orlando Pirates

Sundowns keen to pounce for Pule

Vincent Pule has been on the fringes at Orlando Pirates, but that hasn’t stopped champions Sundowns from taking an interest in the talented wide attacker. According to SoccerLaduma, the Brazilians are ready to launch a bid for the 31-year-old star born in QwaQwa.

Pule has made just 20 appearances in the last two DStv Premiership seasons combined. You have to go back to 2018-19 for his best goal-scoring campaign, with nine strikes from 26 league appearances. It’s believed that Sundowns would see Pule as a good rotation option rather than a regular first-team starter, which makes sense given his checkered injury record in recent campaigns. Pule also has a title-winning pedigree, having lifted the league crown with Wits in 2016-17.

With Pule’s contract expiring in 2025, would now be a good time for the Sea Robbers to cash in on the player? Let us know in the comments.
