Club management has initially agreed to loan out the defender next season but have made a U-turn on the decision stating that he should stay.
Phakaaathi has learned that the defender is in the plans of the club’s technical team for next season.
Chabalala was loaned out to Chippa United before he was recalled and struggled to break into the starting line up at Pirates.
Chabalala was linked with a move to Kaizer Chiefs next season.
“He was going to be loaned out against next season but after the technical team table their plan and which players are going to be used the decision was ruled out,” a source told Phakaaathi.
“He is definitely staying and could be a key player in defence for them next season.”
