Orlando Pirates midfielder Thulasizwe Mbuyane should start looking for a new club, according to Goal's source within the Soweto giants' camp.

Mbuyane's contract with Pirates expires next June, and he will be eligible to sign a pre-contract with the club of his choice in January if Bucs continue to be silent about his future.

"The club hasn't said anything to Moses (Mbuyane) regarding his future, but it is clear that he's unwanted at Pirates right now and should start looking for a new club," said Goal's source.

The former Free State Stars man hasn't seen much of a game time for the past few seasons despite being injury free, and he was thought to be considering a move away from Parktown at the end of last season.

At 31, Mbuyane will definitely be eager to spend more time on the field than in the stands although his situation is unlikely to improve with Roger de Sa seemingly not a fan of rotation system at Pirates.

The Mamelodi-born midfielder, who has represented South Africa at international level with Bafana, is currently nursing a minor injury that he suffered at training over a week ago.
