Prior to the start of the season, Pirates sent Tercious Malepe, Sandile Mthethwa, Lebogang Sentsho and Brian Hlongwa on loan to different clubs in the PSL and NFD. 

The four players will hope to emulate the success of some of the first team regulars at Pirates, who have been playing regularly for Coach Milutin Sredojevic’s team on their return from loan.

The likes of Innocent Maela, Mthokozisi Dube, Thembinkosi Lorch and Gladwin Shitolo are some of the regulars in Bucs’ line-ups, who have previously been loaned by the Soweto giants.

Under Muhsin Ertugral at Ajax, Malepe has been one of the influential players, with noteworthy improvement with his performances. 

The defender-cum-midfielder has started in all 10 league games under the Turkish coach since his arrival at the club to replace Stanley Menzo in January.
