The agent of Orlando Pirates striker Terrence Dzvukamanja has confirmed plans to SABC Sport to fast-track the players’ move away from the club.

With the transfer window re-opening on 1 January, it seems only a matter of time before the Zimbabwean international finds a new home.

“Yes, we are busy looking at opportunities for him – it’s clear that he hasn’t made the necessary progress that we were all hoping for at Pirates,” said his representative Mike Makaab of Prosport International.

“It’s in everybody’s interest, especially the player, that we find a solution. I think unless something drastic changes we would be looking to find a new home for Terrence in this [coming] transfer window.”

Dzvukamanja joined the Buccaneers at the start of the 2020/21 season following the unexpected sale of Bidvest Wits and in his maiden year at Pirates under then-coach Josef Zinnbauer, the striker made 22 appearances.

Since the arrival of Jose Riveiro at the start of the 2022/23 campaign, the minutes have dwindled to just a single game out of the 17 that the Spaniard has been in charge of.

It remains to be seen how Makaab orchestrates his clients’ exit from the Soweto outfit, given Pirates do still have the option to trigger a one-year extension on the player’s current contract until June.

The Buccaneers could ask for a cut-price transfer fee.

“But obviously if the player isn’t playing then it means it’s far better for him to find a club where he is going to be given an opportunity to get some game time, and that’s why it’s important for us [to leave],” the agent explained.

Reports have linked the 28-year-old with a possible move to SuperSport United, and SABC Sport has it on good authority there’s been talks between the parties over a possible deal.

Dzvukamanja was signed by current SuperSport coach Gavin Hunt while he was at Wits in 2018 and there could be a reunion if talks progress further, and positively so.
