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.
