All 19 Players Who Left Pirates: Where Are They Now?

Orlando Pirates continued their high turnover of players in the off season, with several exits and arrivals confirmed by the club.

A few who departed have since found new homes, while others – now free agents – are still desperately on the hunt for clubs where they can find regular game-time.

Overall, as many as 19 players were either placed on the transfer list, loaned out or did not have their contracts renewed. A few others returned from loan spells the season before and not all of them have stayed on to fight to make an impression, like Ayanda Nkosi.

Marshall Munetsi clinched himself a deal in France and Thamsanqa Gabuza shocked the football fraternity by joining SuperSport United.

Check out the gallery to see where these players are now 

Permanent departures:

Jackson Mabokgwane, Thabo Qalinge, Ayanda Nkosi, Mpho Makola, Diamond Thopola, Marcelo, Thabo Matlaba, Abbubaker Mobara, Marshall Munetsi, Kudakwashe Mahachi, Thamsanqa Gabuza, Phetso Maphanga, Lehlohonolo Mtshali.

Loan exits:

Gladwin Shitolo, Sandile Mthethwa, Meshack Maphangule, Themba Sikhakhane, Tercious Malepe, Brian Hlongwa.

It is not a foregone conclusion that once the loan deals have lapsed, the players will become regulars at Pirates, so they have the current season to prove their worth.

Do you think Pirates will regret losing these players?
