Senegal international Issa Sarr could leave South African giants Orlando Pirates during the current Transfer Window.
The central defensive midfielder has fallen out of favour at the Absa Premiership outfit this season, but he’s not short of admirers.
Absa Premiership sides Baroka FC and Lamontville Golden Arrows are reportedly keen to sign Sarr according to South African publication, Soccer Laduma.
“According to Siya sources, Baroka FC and Golden Arrows are keen on adding the Senegalese player to their roster during the January transfer window, either on loan or as a permanent transfer.
“Sarr has fallen down the pecking order at Bucs, under the mentorship of Coach Milutin 'Micho' Sredojevic, seeing very little first team action.
“The 31-year-old has featured in only five league outings for the Soweto giants all season, and of the five games, played the full 90 minutes in only two of them,” a statement read.
Sarr, who joined Bucs from another South African side Platinum Stars in 2014, will be hoping to get regular game time in order to enhance his chances of getting a place in Senegal’s 2018 FIFA World Cup squad.
He was an unused substitute twice during Senegal’s World Cup qualifying campaign.
