Orlando Pirates have offered defender, Siyabonga Sangweni, an extra year on his contract that will see him stay at the club for another two seasons.
After reported interest from the likes of Mamelodi Sundowns in the previous off-season, the 33-year-old agreed to a new two-year deal with the Buccaneers, keeping him at the club until the end of the coming season.
The latest news reaching the Siya desk is that the Buccaneers are determined not to lose the services of their centre back, who would be able to sign a pre-contract on a free come the January transfer window.
A source close to the club has indicated that Pirates have offered the player a year extension on his current deal which will see the player contracted to the club until the end of the 2016/17 season.
“Sangweni was given a two-year contract when his last one expired and now the team has offered him another year, which, if he signs, will keep in the team until June 2017. I think the team just wants to tie him down for a long period hence the offer they have given him for another year,” the source said.
Sangweni has received 31 781 votes in the CBL Cup which means he will be part of the starting XI that take on Kaizer Chiefs in the showpiece event at the FNB Stadium on Saturday.
