Mamelodi Sundowns striker Cuthbert Malajila could reportedly join Premier Soccer League (PSL) giants Orlando Pirates.

The Zimbabwean international enjoyed regular game time at Bidvest Wits last season - helping the club win the PSL title, while on a loan deal from Sundowns.

The Brazilians have since recalled the hard-running frontman, who netted four goals in 25 league matches for Wits during the 2016/17 campaign.

Malajila has since been linked with Orlando Pirates, who recently sold their leading marksman Tendai Ndoro to Saudi Arabian club Al Faisaly FC.

According to Zimbabwean football website Soccer24, Malajila is likely to replace his countryman at the Soweto giants.

"Sundowns may allow Malajila to depart Chloorkop on a transfer should the player find himself a satisfactory offer elsewhere. Sources from South Africa suggest that Orlando Pirates have tabled an offer for the striker as they seek a replacement for Tendai Ndoro," a statement read on the site.

Sundowns recently announced that Malajila along with Botswana international Mogakoladi Ngele are waiting for their South African permanent residency.

The two forwards will be registered as locals once their permits are issued by the Department of Home Affairs.
