Cape Town - Nigerian defender James Okwuosa is expected to finalise his contract negotiations with Orlando Pirates as the Buccaneers look to add depth to their defence.

Okwuosa helped Chippa United to an impressive six place in the Premiership last season, but left the club after his contract was allowed to expired.

Reports suggested the 25-year-old had signed a pre-contract agreement with Pirates back in January, but there appears to be some issue with the arrangement as he is yet to join the rest of the squad for pre-season training.
