Orlando Pirates goalkeeper, Felipe Ovono, could be leaving the Soweto giants at the end of the season in search of regular game-time elsewhere.
According to a Siya source, the Equatorial Guinea international shot-stopper does not want to lose his place in the national set-up.
The source suggested that the 22-year-old keeper is open to a move to Europe or within the PSL, as long as he can play and continue to challenge for a place in the Equatorial Guinea national team.
Brighton Mhlongo has made the number one jersey his own at Bucs, with Siyabonga Mpontshane and Ovono playing second fiddle to the 25-year-old.
“Since the return of Brighton, it’s has been hard for the other two goalkeepers to play and with the performances and form that Mhlongo is showing of late, it's not easy for the other goalkeepers to just step in.
“That's why Ovono feels like a move away from Pirates would give him the chance to play. He is his country's number one, so not playing could affect his place and he doesn't want that," the source explained.
In addition, Bucs have reignited their interest in SuperSport United keeper Ronwen Williams, and should the move materialise, it will see Ovono pushed even further down the pecking order.
Ovono, however, is contracted until 2018, which means that he will have to be transferred out or sent on loan, unless the club and player can agree to a mutual termination of his contract.
What advice would you offer Ovono regarding his future? Which league do you think he should go to, if he leaves Pirates?
