Orlando Pirates striker Terrence Dzvukamanja has caught the attention of a PSL side according to reports.
The Zimbabwean attacker has struggled for game-time in Mayfair this season. Dzvukamanja made a solitary cameo appearance for Jose Riveiro’s side back in October 2022.
And now, the coach that’s responsible for luring Dzvukamanja to South Africa is keen on re-signing him in January according to reports!
Gavin Hunt keen on signing Orlando Pirates striker?
SuperSport United coach Gavin Hunt is interested in signing his former striker.
The duo worked together at Bidvest Wits where Dzvukamanja made over 60 appearances under Hunt in the PSL.
“Dzvukamanja’s contract at Orlando Pirates is set to expire at the end of the season and Soccer Laduma reported in edition 1300 that Matsatsantsa are interested in making a bid for the Zimbabwean in the January transfer window.”

In other news, Orlando Pirates legend Lucky Lekgwathi has opened up on the club’s recent performances under Jose Riveiro.
The Spanish mentor took charge at the beginning of the season under much scrutiny. But just under half a season in and he’s the only coach in the league to win a trophy (MTN8).
Lekgwathi has praised Riveiro and the Buccaneers squad after their MTN8 exploits.
Club legend impressed by Bucs
“The progress is there, and I think after winning the MTN8, the confidence is high.” Lucky Lekgwathi told FARPost.
“After that, they lost to [Mamelodi] Sundowns in the Carling Black Label Cup, but I don’t blame them because they were one man down against a good team.
“But Orlando Pirates managed to win the first game against Kaizer Chiefs. For me, I see progress with players, and whoever gets to play makes sure that they perform.
“It’s good to see them competing amongst each other. You know that when someone is not there, you put another player.”
