Orlando Pirates midfielder, Lehlogonolo Masalesa’s future with the Buccaneers currently remains uncertain, as he approaches the end of his deal with the Soweto Giants.
According to Siya sources within Bucs’ camp, the 23-year-old midfielder will see his deal with the club expire at the end of the season and is yet to hear from the management as to whether they will be extending his stay or not.
A Soccer Laduma source indicated that while ‘Vieira’, as the player is affectionately known in football circles, is in the dark regarding where his future lies, he is focused on his game and helping the team climb up the PSL log.
“There is nothing on Masalesa at the moment. Talks haven’t started yet.
“It's true his contract is coming to an end in June and in the past there has been interest from different teams like Ajax Cape Town and Polokwane City, but nothing came through as the team didn't want to release him or loan him out. But at the moment there are no contract talks,” the source explained.
Vieira has featured sparingly for Coach Eric Tinkler this season. He has featured in only seven of the team’s 22 league games played so far, though he was part of the side that beat Jomo Cosmos 5-0 last weekend in the Absa Premiership.
Should the Mayfair-based outfit look to extend Masalesa’s deal?
