Information reaching is that the 21-year-old – signed from Maluti FET College – will not be able to immediately break into the Pirates team and will thus be sent out to another team where he stands a better chance of playing regularly.

All Stars – who provided Pirates with another midfielder in Luvuyo Memela – are the early frontrunners to land Lorch due to their good relationship with the Buccaneers, although there is also interest from African Warriors.

Warriors, who have Morena Ramoreboli, the man who coached Lorch at Maluti, are holding out hope that they can land the stylish midfielder.

Though Lorch has been keen to test himself in the PSL, it appears his loan will likely be a move to the First Division as PSL clubs are apparently not yet aware of his potential.
