Bucs Players Whose Futures Are Still Uncertain

Orlando Pirates have been the quietest team out of Mzansi's Big Three in the transfer window so far, snatching up four players but resisting the urge to let any other movements slip into the media's hands. However, there are a number of players at the club whose futures remain uncertain. Can you guess who?

The Buccaneers endured a frustrating season domestically, seeing them finish seventh on the log and without a cup trophy to show for any of their efforts. 

Their troubled campaign has seen the emergence of reports claiming that a number of changes are expected to take place, but little more has been said.

As such, the likes of Thamsanqa Gabuza, Lehlohonolo Majoro and company face an uncertain future. Let's take a closer look.

Thamsanqa Gabuza
The striker's contract is set to expire on 31 June, and he is reportedly yet to be offered a new deal by Bucs' management. Many fans have called for the exit of Gabuza, who scored just two league goals all season, but the ultimate decision remains with Dr Irvin Khoza.

Lehlohonolo Majoro
"Major" had a campaign filled with frustration, finding the back of the net just once over the course of 2015/16. He also spent most of his time on the bench, which resulted in him tweeting: "Tired of being a spectator." His tweet could very well have condemned him to an exit.

Tshepo Gumede
The defender has struggled to feature regularly for the Sea Robbers since his move from Platinum Stars last year, and many have speculated whether a return to Rustenburg will be on the cards for him, especially given Pirates' latest reinforcements. 

Felipe Ovono
The goalkeeper has fallen second fiddle to Brighton Mhlongo, and if he hopes to keep his position in the Equatorial Guinea national team, he will need to find a club where he will play regularly. Ovono was linked with an exit at the halfway point of the campaign, but nothing more has been said 

What do you think lies in store for these players?
