Ratshibvumo Mulovhedzi who represents the player, confirmed that Pirates have extended the loan deal for the talented defender for the upcoming season.

Chabalala spent the second half of the season at the Bloemfontein outfit on loan as he found it hard to crack into the Pirates starting line-up when both Milutin Sredojevic and Rhulani Mokwena were at helm.
