Cape Town - A lack of game-time could see Orlando Pirates goalkeeper Felipe Ovono leaving the club, reports have claimed.

Brighton Mhlongo has been the club's first choice in goal this season, with Siyabonga Mpontshane and Ovono finding themselves sidelined.

According to Soccer Laduma, Ovono is concerned that his lack of action could cost him his place in the Equatorial Guinea national team and may be pondering a move away from the club.

Ovono has been finding it hard to break into the starting XI since the return of Mhlongo, who was nursing a long-term injury.

The 22-year-old feels that a move away from Pirates would give him the chance to play and remain match fit as he is his country's number one.

The shot stopper Ovono is contracted to the Buccaneers until 2018.
