Orlando Pirates defender Ayanda Gcaba is reportedly unhappy at the Houghton-based side.

The experienced defender has fallen out of favour at Bucs since the arrival of Serbian coach Milutin 'Micho' Sredojevic last August.

According to The Citizen, Gcaba is unhappy with the fact that he has been earmarked to be one of the players, who will be sent packing at the end of the season.

A source at the club told the publication that Pirates are looking to build a young team for the future.

“It’s not easy to leave a big club, especially if you are going to join a small club," the source said.

"I understand his frustrations but his time at the club is already up. You can see with the current back four that is playing that the technical team want players who will be there for a long time," he source continued.

“The problem is that there hasn’t been a team that Gcaba considers suitable for him, that’s why he is not happy,” the source concluded.

Gcaba was linked with a possible move to Lamontville Golden Arrows towards the end of last season, but the move never materialized.
