Cape Town - Orlando Pirates central defender Ayanda Gcaba will spend the remainder of the season on loan at Platinum Stars.

The 31-year-old Bafana Bafana-capped Gcaba is yet to feature for the Buccaneers this season and the club have decided to give him the chance to get some game-time under his belt by joining struggling Stars, who currently prop up the league standings.

"Orlando Pirates Football Club has reached an agreement with Platinum Stars over the services of defender Ayanda Gcaba. The defender moves to Dikwena on loan for the remainder of the season.

"Gcaba has been at the club since 2012 having signed from Free State Stars. The 31-year old had been a regular starter in the Buccaneers setup until recently where he has had little game-time this season under Micho Sredojevic.

"The move to Platinum Stars will see the hard-tackling defender joining former Bucs coach Roger De Sa," read a statement on the Pirates website.

The Soweto giants have also completed a signing this week after snapping up midfielder Xola Mlambo from Bidvest Wits on Monday.

Platinum Stars are next in action when they face Chippa United in Port Elizabeth on Sunday, while Pirates head to the Mother city to tackle Ajax Cape Town on Wednesday.
