Golden Arrows want Gabuza back from Orlando Pirates

By Ernest Makhaya

Orlando Pirates striker Thamsanqa Gabuza could return to Golden Arrows until the end of the season if the Durban-based club's wishes are to be granted.

Gabuza left Abafana Besithende for Pirates before the start of the current season, but our sources within the Arrows camp reveal that the 26-year-old forward is a wanted man.

The Pirates forward is set to meet club owner Mato Madlala before returning to Johannesburg this coming weekend, but it is unclear whether Gabuza will be interested in going back to KZN or not.

"It's a complicated situation, because we all know how Gabuza left Arrows," Goal's source said. "But he's still in KZN and he will meet with the club owner before going back to Gauteng."

"If things go according to plan, we would like to have him on loan until the end of the season, because he's not a regular at Pirates," said our source.

Arrows are currently 16th in the PSL standings after six consecutive defeats, and coach Mark Harrison revealed after their last game of the year that the team needs quality players to survive relegation.

Pirates have Rudolph Bester on loan at Arrows until next May, but it remains to be seen if Gabuza will rejoin the team where he scored 13 goals between 2009 and 2013.
