There are expected to be a few comings-and-goings at Pirates after this season

Peprah arrived in South Africa with great expectations a couple of seasons ago, but the move hasn’t worked out, and apparently Pirates will now look to part ways with him after a period on loan.

“They have been monitoring his progress, unfortunately the technical team is not happy with him,” said a Phakaaathi source. He was supposed to show them that he deserves to play for Pirates, but he has failed, dismally.

“They will be putting him on the transfer list come the end of the season, they don’t think he will add value to the team.”
