Orlando Pirates defender, Bheki Nzunga, is yet to hear from the club management regarding his future at the Parktown outfit.
Nzunga, who joined Pirates from SAFA Second Division (ABC Motsepe) side, M Tigers, three seasons ago, struggled for game time during his time with the club.
The three-year deal that the 26-year-old signed when he joined Bucs in 2011, officially came to an end on Monday(June 30).
According to Nzunga’s agent Abbie Rasimphi of Liberate Resources Sport Management, the club has a two-year option on the player’s contract which they still need to advise whether they will be exercising or not.
“The situation regarding Bheki depends on Pirates. We will know what is happening with him after we have met with Pirates. We are waiting on Pirates to tell us what is happening,” said Rasimphi.
Nzunga had made notable progress in his Bucs’ career under Augusto Palacios in the 2011/12 season, until he was disrupted by a head injury he picked up in the game against Ajax Cape Town in the Mother City later during that campaign.
The Tembisa-born player made 12 league starts at the end of that season. He struggled to rediscover his form under Roger de Sa and Vladimir Vermezovic respectively in the seasons that followed.
