Cape Town - Golden Arrows coach Clinton Larsen has made no secret of his plans to sign loanee Gladwin Shitolo permanently from Orlando Pirates.
The 26-year-old midfielder has impressed Arrows management since joining on a temporary deal at the beginning of the season.
Last season Shitolo had been shipped off on loan to Platinum Stars after struggling for game-time with Pirates.
"I think we know which players that are on loan we would like to keep and Shitolo is one of them," Larsen told KickOff.
"He's an integral part of this team and we will try our level best to make his stay a permanent one.
"(Hellings) Mhango goes to Bidvest Wits so we lose him. Other players have long left like [Ryan] Chapman, [Mwape] Musonda and we are in the market also."
Arrows are also interested in signing Chicken Inn trio Danny Phiri, Tafadzwa Kutinyu and Moses Demetra after impressing during trials at the Premiership club.
