Orlando Pirates are likely to reportedly offload Emmanuel Daniel during the current Transfer Window.

The goalkeeper joined the Buccaneers from Nigerian Professional Football League (NPFL) side Enugu Rangers midway through the 2016/17 season.

Daniel, who is yet to make his official debut for the Buccaneers, could be offloaded by the club according to the latest reports.

This is after Pirates reportedly signed another goalkeeper Xolani Ngcobo. The shot-stopper was previously on the books of Thanda Royal Zulu, who sold their PSL status to AmaZulu.

His arrival is said to have left Daniel's future with the Soweto giants in doubt ahead of the 2017/18 PSL campaign which will start in two weeks time.

The Buccaneers now have five goal-minders on their books namely; Ngcobo, Daniel, Jackson Mabokgwane, Siyabonga Mpontshane and Wayne Sandilands, who recently joined the club from Mamelodi Sundowns.

One them is expected to be leave the Soweto giants as newly appointed Pirates coach Milutin Sredojevic makes changes to the Bucs squad.
