Orlando Pirates are said to have decided to release midfielder Bernard Morrison at the end of the season.

His former club AS Vita are believed to be interested in signing him back from the Buccaneers.

“He lacks commitment at training and his off-the-field conduct is not helping things either. Remember that he was arrested last month. Even though the case was withdrawn, the damage was already done because Pirates made headlines for the wrong reasons. They have decided to release him along with the host of other players, who are not in the coach’s plans for next season,” a source close told Phakaaathi.

“His former club As Vita want him back and I heard that he met their representatives in Swaziland recently. I think he is going there next season, but he will not be at Pirates next season,” added the source.

The 23-year-old Ghanaian midfielder has struggled to get game time at Pirates since joining them at the beginning of the season.

He has failed to make a single appearance in the league this year, with his only appearance for Pirates being against lower league side EC Bees in the Nedbank Cup in March.
