Confirmed: Pirates Part Ways With Goalkeeper, Update On Star

Orlando Pirates have parted ways with French goalkeeper Joris Delle after the shot-stopper struggled for game-time with only three appearances in the league this past season.

The 30-year-old keeper featured only against Chippa United, Bidvest Wits and Cape Town City during the first half of last season, and conceded eight goals out of those matches before he was relegated to the bench.

"Orlando Pirates Football Club has parted ways with goalkeeper Joris Delle as per the player's request," Pirates confirmed on the club's official website.  

"After spending a year in South Africa, Delle has submitted a request in writing citing his inability to adjust to his new surroundings and wants to return to Europe. The Club met the player this morning and has acceded to the 30-year old's request," confirmed the club.  

"His contract has been terminated with immediate effect," the Buccaneers added.
