Orlando Pirates coach Micho Sredojevic has explained why Kermit Erasmus cannot return to the club.

Erasmus, who left Pirates for France in 2016, is currently a free agent after partying ways with French Ligue 1 side Stade Rennais.

There were reports that he could be headed back to South Africa to rejoin Pirates, but Sredojevic says this is impossible at this stage.

“As far as I know, and after deeply analysing the rules, Kermit Erasmus would need to wait until June to be registered in South Africa,” Sredojevic told the media.

“In Turkey, China, I think in Russia also he can play. Having said that, we have great quality at this club, we’re not exactly looking,” added the Serbian coach.
