Orlando Pirates striker Kwame Peprah is open to, but wont force a deadline day move from Orlando Pirates, as local interest mounts in his services, the Siya crew has learnt.

Peprah finds himself in a precarious position at the club.

Despite not getting the required game-time under Bucs new coach Jose Riveiro, the club has been reluctant to part ways with the Ghanaian.

It was in June this year that the Siya crew reported Pirates turned down an offer from an unnamed Greek club as it did not meet the club’s valuation of the player.

There had been a few bids put in front of the club thereafter, but Pirates maintained their stance. 

Now, with most leagues across Europe slamming their transfer window shut, local interest has escalated in the 21-year-old striker who has made just four appearances in all competitions this season.

According to Siya sources, Peprah has set his sights on the Ghanaian national team and his current lack of game-time is not aiding his cause. As a result, the Siya crew has learnt that Peprah is open to a local move, albeit on loan, although he won’t force a move if Pirates objects.
