Jele’s contract with Pirates expired at the end of June, and according to sources close to the club, Pirates have offered the defender a two-year deal.
“All parties are happy with the new deal, and what’s left now is for Jele to sign,” said a source.
Jele has been with the Buccaneers since 2006, and has played a crucial role in their success over the past couple of seasons.
The 31-year-old centre back has won the Absa Premiership twice, the Nedbank Cup twice, the Telkom Knockout and two MTN8 titles.
