Orlando Pirates to decide on Justice Chabalala and James Okwuosa

Orlando Pirates are firmly in control of Chippa United’s central defensive options for next season with Justice Chabalala heading back to the Bucs while James Okwuosa remains in limbo.
Chabalala was surprisingly sent out on loan for the second half of the season and has excelled for Chippa, starting 18 games in all competitions.
His impact at the back is definitely good reason for Chippa to want him to stay, but the ball is not in their court as he was only on a short-term loan.
Pirates will decide, as they remain the parent club.
Meanwhile, Okwuosa left the Chilli Boys on a permanent transfer during the January window with huge ambitions, only to find misery in Johannesburg.
With just a single appearance to his name since moving, the Nigerian defender now wants to return to Chippa.
The big defender has apparently made it known to the Chippa management that he wants to come back as his career has literally frozen up at Pirates, where he is not even considered for match day squads, unlike in Port Elizabeth where he played regularly.
Again, Pirates must decide.
With The Bucs still to play in the Nedbank Cup on June 24, the club will only be making player-related decisions at the end of the month.
