Since joining Pirates from Chippa United in January last year, Marc van Heerden struggled for game-time at the Soweto giants. With the Buccaneers having recently added nine new players which include defenders to their squad for the new season, a decision has been taken to part ways with Van Heerden. 

"Orlando Pirates would like to confirm that following a meeting with Marc van Heerden’s representatives last week, both parties have agreed to mutually terminate the 30-year old’s current contract. Orlando Pirates Football Club would like to wish Marc the best of luck in his future endeavours," Pirates confirmed on the club's official website.

The left-back made only two starts in the league for Bucs during the 2017/18 season. Innocent Maela, who rejoined the club from a loan stint with Thanda Royal Zulu made the left-back position in coach Milutin Sredojevic's team his own.   

New signing Paseka Mako, who has joined Bucs from Chippa, is one of the players expected to compete for a position with Maela in the team's defence in the new season.
