Kwame Peprah’s representatives has offered an update on the Orlando Pirates star’s imminent future with the January transfer window fast approaching.

Peprah has been engulfed in ongoing speculation regarding an exit in recent months from the Buccaneers following the arrival of Bienvenu Eva Nga and Kermit Erasmus, who have jumped ahead in the Buccaneers' pecking order.

The Ghanaian was a pivotal figure in the Pirates side during the 2021/22 season which saw him feature in 38 matches in all competitions.

However, this campaign has seen the 21-year-old spend just 109 minutes on the pitch despite being injury free.

A source from Peprah's camp has now offered an update to the website on the striker’s future by clarifying claims that the player is on the move.

"It's a bit sad to see that he is not in the team but his goal is to continue fighting and get his spot back," the source said.

"This is what Peprah wants, he loves Pirates.

“Time will tell, if some offers come in that benefits Kwame and Pirates.

"Kwame is a professional, he is the kind of guy to arrive to training first and leave last. He lives and breathes football which is why he always wants to be 100 percent. 

"Most importantly, Peprah is looking to prove that he deserves to be a starter at Pirates and that he deserves his spot.

"He already showed last year that he can handle it. He's ready and fully focused to be first-choice striker at the club.
