Cape Town - The representatives of Orlando Pirates goalkeeper Brighton Mhlongo say their client's contract won't expire at the end of the season as he penned a new deal late last year.

Prosport International, the agency which represents the shot-stopper has refuted recent reports that claimed the Bucs were on the verge of offering their client a new three-year contract.

Alban Newman of Prosport International revealed that no offer was being prepared by Pirates due to the fact Mhlongo, 24, had already committed his future to the club last year.

Commenting on the recent speculation, Newman told goal.com: "We know nothing about that.

"Brighton's current deal with Pirates goes beyond this June, as it was renewed late last year. So, there are no contract talks at the moment."

Mhlongo has emerged as the club's number-one goalkeeper this season following the tragic death of Senzo Meyiwa in November.

He has also retained his place in the starting XI, even after the acquisition of Siyabonga Mpontshane from Platinum Stars in the January transfer window.
