Pirates and Bafana midfielder Daine Klate has expressed his satisfaction at playing for the Buccaneers by signing a two-year extension, and Bucs confirm McCarthy negotiations
Klate's contract was set to expire at the end of the current season, and Pirates took time to get into negotiations with the 28-year-old midfielder.
"Can confirm that the club have extended my contract with a further 2 years," Klate wrote on his twitter account.
The news was also confirmed by Pirates PRO Mickey Modisane who also revealed that they are in talks with a few of their players including Benni McCarthy to try and persuade them to stay at the club.
McCarthy's future has been hanging in balance for a while now, and it was believed that the former Blackburn striker could leave Parktown and join either Mamelodi Sundowns or Kaizer Chiefs
"Daine Klate signed two years and we are happy to confirm that. We are still negotiating with other players whom their contracts also come to an end and they include Benni McCarthy," Modisane told Goal.com.
Daine Klate has helped Pirates to two PSL titles in as many seasons and holds a record of five consecutive PSL titles, having won it three times with SuperSport United from 2007.
He is currently with the Bafana squad that will face the Central African Republic in the 2014 World Cup qualifier clash at the Cape Town Stadium on Saturday night.
