It was recently reported that Orlando Pirates trio Brighton Mhlongo, Mahlatse Makudubela and James Okwuosa could be heading to Chippa United ahead of the 2017/18 season.
However, Mhlongo's agent reacted to the rumours and denied any link between the goalkeeper and the Eastern Cape-based side. Should the shot-stopper make a move to the Chilli Boys, though, he would be up against Daniel Akpeyi for a spot between the posts.
The supporters have reacted to the news of the possibility of Mhlongo's move to Chippa United, and many feel it would be a good move for the player.
"I'll be very disappointed if Mhlongo really left for Chippa United. How can they let him go and keep Mabokgwane in the team? For me, Mabokgwane is the one who should leave the club because I don't see any effort from him to save the team." – Max A
"Pirates will regret letting Mhlongo go. In a few seasons' time, they will be chasing him." – Mcolisi Mr Nice Dlamini
"Every time I see Mhlongo, I'm reminded of that SuperSport game. Playing for Chippa will be good for him, people won't expect much." – angam
"Mhlongo is a good keeper, it's just that he lacks confidence. But a move to Chippa will make him rise again." – Thapza@K4l
"To be honest, Mhlongo is a good keeper. His height and his body is that of a good keeper. He knows how to save and stop penalties. He was let down by his back four last season. He can be a good keeper at a big team like Chiefs." – Dangerous when provoked
Do you think Mhlongo should consider a move away from Pirates?
