There has been plenty of comings and goings at Orlando Pirates in the off season, and it appears the transfer activity at the club is far from over.
The Soweto giants have welcomed nine new signings so far in the transfer window, with more reportedly on the way, and haven’t really been shy of showing some the door.
Marshall Munetsi was the first to exit, signed by French Ligue One outfit Stade Reims, then a host of players were released with the likes of Abbubaker Mobara and Thabo Matlaba eventually finding new clubs, while others were loaned out to other PSL outfits.
After a season where new stars emerged, some clubs have kept an eye on some Pirates stars, and we could be in for more transfer activity at the club, while some could be itching for a much-needed change of scenery after struggling to break into the first team.
Egyptian giants and Spanish La Liga outfit Eibar are among clubs said to be interested in the Zambian international.
Earlier reports suggested that the North Africans had tabled an offer for his services, something which was disputed by the club.
One of the longest-serving players still remaining at the club, Mpho Makola will, in all likelihood, be playing elsewhere when the new season kicks off.
All indications are that his days in the famous black are numbered, as the player has been placed on the transfer list.
After just six games the whole of last season, the defender is another player linked with the move away from the club.
However, things are looking up for Nyauza, as far as his Orlando Pirates future is concerned, with Munetsi and Caio Marcelo’s departures leaving the squad rather thin at the back.
The once highly-rated defender is another one who’s future has been up in the air, having not featured for the club at all last season.
Like Nyauza, the 27-year-old could however see more game time if Pirates do not bring in any defensive reinforcements in the remaining weeks of the transfer window.
Was one of nine players revealed at once ahead of the 2018/19 season, but must have been lost in the crowd as he barely featured in that campaign.
Reports suggest that Mabaso has grown frustrated with his lack of game time, and could look for greener pastures elsewhere.
