Orlando Pirates striker Eethe Khaukanani looks set to leave the Soweto giants on another loan deal.
The promising forward returned to the Houghton-based club from National First Division (NFD) side Tshakhuma Tsha Madzivhandila (TTM) FC midway through the recent 2017/18 campaign.
Khaukanani, who joined the Buccaneers from Free State Stars in 2016, had secured a move to TTM on a season-long loan deal at the beginning the season.
However, his stay in the Limpopo province was cut short after the player reportedly complained that he was allegedly not paid his salary by the club and he ended up returning to Pirates.
Khaukanani left TTM having made just three appearances in the second tier of South African football and he is destined to return to the NFD according to his agent agent, Ratshibvumo Mulovhedzi,
"Yes, it is true that he might leave Orlando Pirates on loan," Mulovhedzi told Goal.
The Buccaneers recently announced the signing of new players ahead of the new 2018/19 campaign.
Khaukanani might battle for game time at Bucs, who are under the guidance of Serbian coach Milutin 'Micho' Sredojevic.
"The club recently signed a lot of players and a young player like Eethe might not get some game time in the new season," he continued.
"So, I am busying looking for an NFD club that is willing to sign him on loan and guarantee him game time. Then I will report back to Pirates regarding the interest," he added.
Mulovhedzi believes that Khaukanani would stand a good chance of winning the NFD's Golden Boot award if he plays regularly.
"If he plays regularly, I believe that he can be the top goalscorer in the NFD and come back to Pirates an improved player," Mulovhedzi concluded.
