Orlando Pirates Could Send Young Star On Loan

Orlando Pirates could send one of the club's talented young stars on loan in the next transfer window in January, or at the end of the season, with a view of helping him gain more experience for top-flight football.

As reported in edition 1090 of Soccer Laduma, the Buccaneers could send young Augustine Mahlonoko to another club on loan as their way of giving him a chance to play more matches this season so that he could gather much-needed experience at the highest level, according to sources.
