Pirates looking to chop five players


Collins Makgaka’s contract expires in June, and he hasn’t begun a competitive outing this term. The attacking midfielder may be preparing to leave for Stellenbosch.

In 2022–2023, Sandile Mthethwa, a central defender, hasn’t played a single minute of competitive football. Innocent Maela, Olisa Ndah, Nkosinathi Sibisi, and Tapelo Xoki are all ahead of the 25-year-old in the pecking order, showing how stacked the pirates are in that area. He might benefit from moving to Golden Arrows, Chippa, or Richards.

The career of Ghanaian striker Kwame Peprah has somewhat stagnated, and a transfer away from Mayfair could turn things around for the 21-year-old.

Terrence Dzvukamanja and Eva Nga are two other strikers rumoured to be leaving the club. Dzvukamanja, a Zimbabwean, might be dropped to make room for a foreign player in the squad.

In contrast, Bienvenu Eva Nga, a 29-year-old Cameroonian, had a very promising beginning. But ever since Kermit Erasmus joined the team, a transfer away has been frequently mentioned. Gavin Hunt, his former Wits manager, is reportedly eager for a reunion at SuperSport.
