Word coming out of the Moroka Swallows camp is that former Orlando Pirates midfielder, Mark Mayambela, has stopped training with the team.
Mayambela, who is currently a free agent following the expiry of his Pirates contract at the end of last season, had asked Swallows to allow him to continue training with them last week. This was after Swallows had decided against signing the talented midfielder.

Swallows coach Zeca Marques has since confirmed to the Siya crew that Mayambela is no longer training with his team.
“It looks like Mark has decided not to train with us anymore because he didn’t pitch up. Not that we were expecting him because as you know, the club has taken a decision not to sign him," said the coach.
Meanwhile, Marques confirmed that former Pirates youngster, Cyril Mashego, has started training with the Birds.
Mashego spent the 2012/13 season on loan at Chippa United. He went back to Pirates when all the other players that were loaned out last season returned to the club at the start of pre-season.
He subsequently trained with Wits, however was unsuccessful in securing a deal and is now trying his luck at Swallows.
