Word coming out of the Orlando Pirates camp is that the club will send Ayanda Nkosi and Sello Japhta to Golden Arrows on loan in January.

Nkosi, Japhta and defender Justice Chabalala joined Pirates from Free State Stars during the offseason.

While Chabalala has been able to get regular game time at Bucs, Nkosi and Japhta have struggled. Now word is that the duo will be sent out to Arrows to get game time.

Meanwhile, defender Ayanda Gcaba’s future is also uncertain at Pirates.

Gcaba, who played with Edwin Gyimah at centre-back under Eric Tinkler, has lost his place to Chabalala, with Happy Jele as the other preferred centre-back.
