“Both players’ contracts have ended and the club has taken a decision not to renew. As a result both players are free to join any club of their choice.
“Bacela and Masuku met with management yesterday where they were handed their clearances.
“The club would like to wish both players all of the best for their future endeavours,” read a statement on the official Pirates website.
Meanwhile, Pirates have also confirmed the loaning out of Letsie Koapeng, Siyanda Ngubo and Maselaelo Seanego to Royal Eagles for the rest of the season.
