Cape Town - Orlando Pirates have received a welcome boost with the news that midfielders Mpho Makola and Oupa Manyisa have penned new contracts.

The news was confirmed by the players' agent, Harold Legodi, who represents both Manyisa and Makola since their youth.

Manyisa, who has been capped 31 times by Bafana Bafana, has been ever-present in Pirates' midfield since making his debut in 2008, amassing over 250 appearances to date.

The club's supporters will undoubtedly be happy with the news, especially after the man known as 'Ace' was strongly linked with a move to Mamelodi Sundowns in recent times.

"Both Makola and Manyisa are staying with Pirates. They have just renewed their contracts with Pirates," Legodi told KickOff.

Both players featured for Pirates this weekend as they lost their Group B, CAF Confederation Cup fixture 2-1 to Zamalek.
