Cape Town - Orlando Pirates head coach Kjell Jonevret remained silent as to which players the club are looking to offload in the upcoming transfer window.

The transfer window is set to open next month and the Swedish mentor will be looking to better his squad for the 2018/19 season as early as possible.

"I haven't talked so much about that (player transfers) but of course when you are in this situation you've got ideas already from the beginning - it is possible to do this thing," Jonevret said as quoted by KickOff website.

"But I can't say I'm looking forward to it but it should be when the season is over. Hopefully, it'll end in the positive way.

"It should be really nice to start the new pre-season and I'm looking forward to that but right now my focus is to try to play as well as possible in these games in the league and do everything we can to extend this season by an extra month for the (Nedbank) Cup final.

"But of course we've got ideas but we'll discuss that with the club and we'll wait and see.”

It has not been the best of seasons for the Sowetan giants as they find themselves 10th on the Premiership log with a chance of lifting the Nedbank Cup.

The Buccaneers take on Golden Arrows in the semi-final of the Ke Yona competition on Sunday at the Princess Magogo Stadium.

Kick off is at 15:00.
