Cape Town - Orlando Pirates defender Mthokozisi Dube has returned to the Soweto giants following a loan stint with Bloemfontein Celtic last season.

The 23-year-old will report for pre-season training this week, where he will get the chance to prove his worth to new Bucs boss Muhsin Ertugral ahead of the 2016/17 Absa Premiership campaign.

However, Celtic CEO Khumbulani Konco has confirmed they would like to retain the services of the former Royal Eagles player.

As such, Siwelele have already "sent a request" to Pirates, according to Konco.

"He has gone back to Pirates," Konco told KickOff. "We are still interested in keeping him next season and we will send a request to Pirates."

Dube made 11 appearances for Celtic last season as the Free State-based outfit finished the Premiership campaign in 11th place.
