Brighton Mhlongo’s agent, Mike Makaab, has denied that the Orlando Pirates goalkeeper has joined Chippa United.

This comes after Chippa chairman Siviwe ‘Chippa’ Mpengesi confirmed on radio that Mhlongo and defender James Okwuosa joined his club from Orlando Pirates.

Makaab took to social media to deny Mpengesi’s claims.

“Why have @Orlando_Pirates not announced Brighton’s departure? The reason is that it is not true,” wrote Makaab on his Twitter account.

With Pirates having added Wayne Sandilands to their books, making him the fifth goalkeeper at the club, Pirates are said to be considering releasing one keeper.
