Sangweni is not part of the Bucs squad that is on a training camp in Nelspruit as his future continues to be the subject of speculation.
The absence of club chairman Irvin Khoza, who is in Brazil for the World Cup, has led many to believe that contracts talks with the defender have been temporarily put on ice.
However, Pirates spokesman Mickey Modisane tells KickOff.com that the club is still negotiating with the Bafana Bafana player.
“Look, the fact that the chairman is not here does not mean that we have stopped negotiating with the player,” Modisane says.
“Negotiations with the player are still ongoing and once everything is finalised, we will let the media and everyone know of our position.”
