Dube made eight Absa Premiership starts for Phunya Sele Sele and has convinced management to retain his services.

Pelembe initially impressed in the 'City of Roses' but fell out of favour, especially after Serame Letsoaka replaced Clinton Larsen as head coach in December last year. The Mozambican scored twice in three league starts and five substitute appearances.

"We are keen to keep Dube. We still have to speak to Pirates," says a Celtic official.

"Pelembe is going back to Pirates."
