Official: Downs & Pirates Departees Confirmed

Late on deadline day, JDR Stars have confirmed loan deals for Mamelodi Sundowns left-back Malebogo Modise and Orlando Pirates midfielder Azola Tshobeni.

Masandawana had already seen several players leave their inflated squad this window, but they needed to cut their squad size down some more.

As a consequence, Modise left the club to join the GladAfrica Championship side on Tuesday. The 22-year-old was on loan at Maritzburg United last season, featuring 13 times.

Tshobeni, meanwhile, joins the Hammersboyz from Pirates after making eight appearances for the Buccaneers last season.

He becomes Pirates seventh departure of the window following loan deals for Monnapule Saleng and Austin Muwowo to Swallows FC, as well as permanent exits of Justice Chabalala, Mthokozisi Dube, Sandile Mthethwa and Jean-Marc Makusu.
