Cape Town - Orlando Pirates legend Eugene Zwane believes Chippa United captain James Okwuosa would be a good signing for the Soweto giants.
The Buccaneers will be looking to strengthen the defence after the retirement of veteran Siyabonga Sangweni.
Media speculation has linked Okwuosa with a move to Pirates in the upcoming transfer window.
"I have heard the rumours that he is on his way to Pirates, but he would really be a decent signing. He is a strong and tall defender and his physical presence would bring a different dimension team's play at the back," Zwane told Goal website.
"I understand the interest in signing him, especially with the retirement of Sangweni. You must also remember that Edwin Gyimah has been converted into a defender. So, there was a need to bring in another defender and Okwuosa will bring something different to the team.
"He's got a big frame while Tsepo Gumede is not a giant defender. I think they will have a good balance at the back if he partners Gyimah. You do not always need ball-playing defenders playing together at the back, but those that can complement each other."
