Cape Town - Veteran midfielder Mpho Makola is on the lookout for a new club ahead of the new campaign after parting ways with Absa Premiership outfit Orlando Pirates.

The 33-year-old calls an end to a seven-year association with the Orlando club, having signed for the Bucs from Free State Stars in 2012.

A statement on the club's official website read: "Orlando Pirates Football Club has parted ways with Mpho Makola.

"An agreement has been reached for the mutual termination of the contract, following a meeting with the player.

"Makola joined the club in 2012 where he went on to register over 170 appearances for the Buccaneers in a career which saw him score 21 goals and register 28 assists.

"The club would like to thank Mr Makola for his service and wish him the best of luck in his future endeavours."

Makola - who was placed on the transfer list at the end of last season - is now free to find a new club, and according to IOL, Kaizer Chiefs are weighing up an offer for the experienced midfielder.
