A Zambian winger is facing an exit from Orlando Pirates, following the arrival of new players at the club.
Having welcomed Deon Hotto and Terrence Dzvukamanja from Bidvest Wits, among the new arrivals at the Buccaneers, the club is expected to part ways with at least one star from its foreign players.
Last season, Pirates had four foreigners in their squad in French goalkeeper Joris Delle and the Zambian trio of Justin Shonga, Augustine Mulenga and Austin Muwowo, while Gabadinho Mhango was registered as a local after he acquired his South Africa citizenship.
According to sources, Muwowo is likely to be sacrificed as the club will be assembling the squad for the new season, with Hotto and Dzvukamanja set to fill up the club’s foreign quota.
Muwowo struggled for game-time under Josef Zinnbauer this past season, having made only two substitute appearances during the 2019/20 campaign.
According to sources, the 23-year-old is likely to be loaned as he still has two years on his contract with the club.
Muwowo joined Pirates in July last year on a three-year deal from Zambian club, Nkana.
Meanwhile, Shonga has also been linked with an exit from the Buccaneers after he also struggled for game-time, and the player’s previously spoke about a potential overseas move for him.
