Namibian international Deon Hotto will become one of the highest paid players in the Premier Soccer League, earning more than R500,000 a month at Orlando Pirates next season. An insider who was involved in the deal told Business Day that the 28-year-old attacker currently “earns around R200,000 a month” at Bidvest Wits and this figure will more than double when he moves to Pirates, with whom he has concluded a four-year deal and will be unveiled as a Buccaneer after the current season is completed. The insider revealed that free-spending Mamelodi Sundowns were the first premiership club to approach the player with an offer of R4m a year‚ but Pirates were so keen to secure Hotto’s signature that they countered with a sumptuous proposal.
