Augustine Mahlonoko and Yusuf Maart will hope to hear from Orlando Pirates regarding their future with the club.
After being promoted to the Pirates first team as a 16-year-old in 2018, Augustine Mahlonoko failed to make the progress he was expected to make at the Soweto giants, which led to him sent to the ABC Motsepe League.
The 18-year-old midfielder, who made the headlines after he was included in The Guardian’s list as one of the best young talents in the world in 2018, is being nurtured at Pirates’ feeder team, Pele Pele in Mzansi’s third tier league.
The Sebokeng-born player will be keen on a return to the first team at the Buccaneers next season, having already made his debut in the Absa Premiership last season at the age of 16.
Meanwhile, Maart will also be hoping to return to Pirates to fight for his place in coach Josef Zinnbauer’s team next season.
Maart has impressed with his performances for Pele Pele and has been made the captain of the side. The 24-year-old spent last season playing in the GladAfrica Championship for Cape Umoya United on loan from Bucs.
