Cape Town - Orlando Pirates could send Mpho Mvelase out on loan at the end of the season.

According to Soccer Laduma, the defender has been struggling for game-time after joining the Buccaneers from Chippa United.

The 27-year-old made the move to Parktown in the January transfer window in 2015.

Mvelase played only one game for Pirates last season which was his debut and this campaign has seen the defender feature twice in the Absa Premiership and Telkom Knockout.

The player penned a three-year-deal last year and hasn’t completely convinced Eric Tinkler that he deserves to be in match day squads.

Meanwhile, Pirates will return to action on Sunday in a Nedbank Cup last 16 fixture against Jomo Sono.

Kick-off is at 15:00.
