Lepasa, 25, will be spending the second half of the campaign on loan to Gavin Hunt's SuperSport United.

This comes after the Buccaneers, via their social media platforms, confirmed that the forward is headed out on loan.

The writing was on the wall for the lanky forward who missed Pirates' last four matches, three of which have resulted in wins for Pirates.

And with Pirates roping in Cameroonian forward Souaibou Marou, Lepasa was the sacrificial lamb to make way for the forward.

Hunt will welcome the addition of Lepasa to his arsenal, with the coach hinting at a need for a youthful forward to compliment the experience of Thamsanqa Gabuza and Bradley Grobler in attack for Matsatsantsa.

Lepasa has made appearances in all competitions this season and has managed just one goal in that time.
