Forward Jean-Marc Makusu is sikely to again be loaned out after being surplus to requirements at Orlando Pirates


Makusu joined Pirates in a loan deal from Congolese club AS Vita Club at the beginning of the season and with the Buccaneers choosing not to take up the option of a permanent transfer he has now returned back home.

His handlers have now confirmed to KickOff that Makusu will now be moving on loan again from AS Vita to DC Motema Pembe in DR Congo Ligue One.

The 29-year-old still has a running contract with AS Vita.

Makusu’s move has been forced by the fact that he needs game time following a difficult season with Pirates where he was down the pecking order behind Tshegofatso Mabasa and Gabadinho Mhango.

He scored once in eight appearances for Pirates and didn’t play any game from start to finish.

That single goal came in the CAF Confederation Cup second round against Jwaneng Galaxy away in Botswana.  

Tanzania giants Young Africans have for long shown but have been limited by finances in completing the transfer to take Makusu across Lake Tanganyika.

The interest from East Africa has stood from the time he came back from Egypt where he spent time at Wadi Degla before moving to AS Vita.

Makusu has previously played in Belgium, Hungary, Algeria, Egypt and in his home country Congo DR.
