Cape Town - Orlando Pirates have dismissed speculation linking Mozambican international striker Helder Pelembe with a move to the Parktown-based club.

The Telkom Knockout losing finalists are expected to strengthen their striking department in the upcoming January transfer window period as they are currently being forced to rely solely on Collins Mbesuma and Lennox Bacela.
The Zambian international hit-man, Mbesuma, has missed the majority of the season due to injuries, while Bacela has been used as a lone striker by coach Roger De Sa in most matches to date.

The Club Administration Manager, Floyd Mbele, told the goal.com website nothing has been concluded despite reports stating that Pelembe has signed a three-year contract.

Pirates currently occupy 16th - and last - spot in the PSL standings, some 16 points adrift of log-leaders Mamelodi Sundowns, although they have played six fewer matches.
