Orlando Pirates have confirmed the contract extension of defender Happy Jele.

The Pirates captain will be with the Sea Robbers for one more season.

Pirates revealed that Jele and is agent Jazzman Mahlakgane met with the club chairperson to sign a new deal on Monday.

Jele’s contract with the Soweto giants expired at the end of last season but chairperson Irvin Khoza assured the defender that he would be offered a new deal when he dismissed reports linking Jele with a move away from Pirates in the coming season.

“Jele, who will celebrate his 13th year as an Orlando Pirates player this upcoming season, has been handed a one-year extension with an additional option to keep him at the Club up to the end of the 2021/22 season,” read a statement on Pirates’ website.
