A source close to Orlando Pirates central defender Mthokozisi Sithole says his name is on a list of the youngsters that coach Kjell jonevret is looking at promoting to the first team next season. 

Sithole is believed to have attracted interest from teams in the Absa Premiership as well as the National First Division.

“Mthoko is one of the most talented youngsters at the club, they know very well there are teams that want to sign him. But I doubt that could happen because coach Kjell has seen him play a couple of times and is very impressed. So he has been told to wait, but surely he will be part of the first team next season,” said the source.
