Cape Town - Orlando Pirates attacker Thembinkosi Lorch on Tuesday confirmed that he has replaced his agent Mickey Paiva, after failing to secure an overseas move.

It is believed the Bafana Bafana international showed his representative the door for his failure to secure a move after several teams showed an interest.

There was plenty of speculation that Lorch would move on from the Buccaneers after the African Cup Nations in August but a transfer failed to materialise with Lorch remaining at the Soweto giants.

The 26-year-old is hoping a change of agent could land him a deal in the next transfer window.

Lorch told the Sowetan: "I don't have an agent at the moment because I terminated my contract with Mickey.

"I am still deciding what to do going forward."

Lorch, who was the PSL's Player of the Year last season, has not been in the best form this campaign but did score the winner in the Telkom Knockout clash against Stellenbosch FC on Saturday.
