The Zambian has failed to make an impact at the Buccaneers since his arrival in 2019.

According to the source, Muwowo has been working very hard at training, but doesn’t seem to know what he is not doing right to play.

“My guy, it’s like any other player at any other club who doesn’t play, they become frustrated. It’s really eating him inside because he knows his qualities and he works very hard. I don’t blame him for wanting to leave.

“His agent tried to secure a loan but the management refused, they say he is still part of the plans at the club. So, I’m not really sure what’s going to happen, maybe his wishes might be granted before the transfer deadline,” said the source. The transfer window closes on November 30.

Former Pirates and Mamelodi Sundowns striker, Tokelo Rantie, meanwhile, could join Kenyan giants, Gor Mahia a source has whispered to the Phakaaathi gang’s ears.

Rantie has struggled to get a team locally since leaving Sundowns where he experienced some personal social issues which led to the club letting him go.
