Pirates Enquire On Defender Availability, Talks Ongoing

Enquiries have been made about an Orlando Pirates defender who is on loan elsewhere this season, as co-coaches Mandla Ncikazi and Fadlu Davids are expected to make important decisions in preparing for the second half of the campaign. 

After a decision to loan Justice Chabalala to Sekhukhune United from Pirates this season, the Giyani-born player had hoped to prove his worth at the Babina Noko to improve his chances of playing at the Soweto giants.
