Orlando Pirates duo Abel Mabaso and Linda Mntambo are set to return to Chippa United on loan if the Port Elizabeth club survives relegation.
Mabaso, one of the Chilli Boys' star performers last season, has played only four matches for The Buccaneers in this campaign.
Midfielder Mntambo, who is also known as 'Figo' among his peers, has featured 11 times for the Soweto giants this season, scoring a single goal.
"Mabaso is going, he is returning to Chippa, as well as this tall boy Linda Mntambo. They are going back to Chippa on loan, both of them," a source close to both players tells KickOff.com.
Chippa CEO Morgan Mammila was asked for a comment on the matter.
"No there is no such [for] now, we'll plan at the end of the season who we're gonna bring back and who we're gonna keep, who we want to buy," Mammila says.
