Clinton Larsen says he is waiting for new Orlando Pirates coach Muhsin Ertugral to decide whether he will keep Gladwin Shitolo at the club.
Shitolo spent last season on loan at Golden Arrows, but the midfielder will be returning to Pirates for pre-season when they start in July.
Ertugral will have to assess his squad first before he decides who he will keep and who will be let go.
“We are waiting for Muhsin to see if he [Shitolo] is in his plan; if not, there will be a big chances that we can get him back,” Larsen tells KickOff.com.
“We were impressed with him and it will be good to have him back again.”
Larsen adds that they are also interested in keeping Rodney Ramagalela, who has returned to Mamelodi Sundowns.
“This is the problem when you have a lot of loan players is they do well with you and return to their clubs. We hope Ramagalela will also return to us as well.
“I can also confirm we are in advanced talks with some of the players, but I can't reveal their names at the moment. We are looking to sign eight players to replace those we lost.”
