The Burundi international has reportedly attracted the interest of clubs across the country, including the Buccaneers.

However, the 24-year-old claims there have been no talks between him and Pirates and is adamant he has a big future with the Students.

"At the moment I'm working hard to get into shape. I am pushing and working hard to get back, and I want to improve.”
