Linda Mntambo is reportedly keen to remain an Orlando Pirates player amid suggestions he could be on his way out of the club.

An option of joining former side Chippa United could be on the cards, although all transfer talks are currently on hold as South Africa prepares to go into lockdown for 21 days.

The 30-year-old's agent Palesa Mkhize told Goal: "We spoke to Mntambo about his situation at Pirates.

"He said he was happy at the club and still wants to fight for his place. He still has a contract with Pirates.

"So, there is no need to try and move him elsewhere if he still wants to stay."

Mntambo has played just nine times for Bucs this season.

Mkhize added: "In the meantime, we will wait for the coaches to state whether they want to keep him or loan him out."
