Thabiso Kutumela has hinted that he would be joining Orlando Pirates next season.

The 24-year-old Baroka FC striker said he was unsure at the moment as to what the future holds for him but revealed that if a chance to join Pirates were to avail itself, he would definitely grab it with both hands.

“You know rumours are rumours. The newspapers are just doing their jobs… If a chance to join Pirates comes, I will be happy to take it,” he said Kutumela in an interview with SABC Sport on Saturday afternoon.

Kutumela scored his 17th National First Division goal on Saturday to help Bakgaga to a 1-0 win over

Witbank Spurs and maintain their three point lead going into the last two games of the season.

He said he is aiming for 20 goals this season.

Meanwhile, Highlands Park also won 2-0 against Black Leopards to keep the pressure on Baroka, while

Royal Eagles lost 2-0 to Vasco Da Gama.
