Cape Town - Orlando Pirates have confirmed that Justice Chabalala and Tebogo Tlolane have gone out on loan to Bloemfontein Celtic and Maritzburg United respectively.

After winning the vote to start in the Carling Cup against Soweto rivals Kaizer Chiefs at the beginning of the season, Chabalala has had precious little game time at the Buccaneers, with the likes of Ntsikelelo Nyauzu and Alfred Ndengane having usurped him in the pecking order.

Tlolane, meanwhile, has made just one appearance for the Sea Robbers this season when he came off the bench in the 0-0 draw with AmaZulu.

The 25-year-old will now enjoy a loan spell with Eric Tinkler's side.

"Orlando Pirates has agreed for Justice Chabalala to join Bloemfontein Celtic on loan for the remainder of the 2019/20 season," the club announced in a statement released.

"The 28-year-old defender joins Phunya Sele Sele, where he will work under the watchful eye of former Pirates defender Lehlohonolo Seema, who is currently Head Coach of Celtic.

"Orlandopiratesfc.com can also confirm the departure of Tebogo Tlolane, who moves to Maritzburg United on loan for the remainder of the season."

The Buccaneers are back in action this weekend against AmaZulu on Saturday.

Kick-off is at 18:00.
