With competition to break into the first team seemingly tough for him, one of Orlando Pirates' highly-rated recent signing has decided to leave the club on a temporary basis.

Midfielder Miguel Dias, who signed for Pirates towards the closing stages of 2020 from University of Pretoria (TUKS), has since been farmed out to GladAfrica Championship club Cape Town Spurs until the end of the season, this will help him to get some much-needed game time.

Dias, who possesses an immense technical ability, spent some time playing for Dutch club PEC Zwolle, and his experience in the Netherlands will certainly a struggling Spurs side who are embroiled in a relegation dogfight.

Dias shed some light on how his stint at Pirates unfolded, which he says came about quite late in the year, as he joined them in a Bossman deal (free transfer) upon the expiry of his TuKs contract. He furthermore added that a meniscus injury he suffered which kept him out for 2019 really worked against him.

"So, I signed with Orlando Pirates before the year ended last year, but I was signed with them until the end of this season to play a couple of months in the ABC league, because the year before I had come back from a meniscus injury, so I was out for about 4-5 months," he said on the Spurs official website.

On his decision to join Spurs, Dias indicated that at Pirates he had been playing in their ABC Motsepe side - Pele Pele, but that was curtailed following SAFA suspension of the all football activities in the country due to the unrelenting Covid-19 pandemic.

This, Dias, said compelled the Buccaneers' head coach Josef Zinnbauer to decide that perhaps he should go out on-loan to get some game time until the end of the season.

"But I just needed to be playing football, so I just thought let me start somewhere. Then I was playing for Pele Pele FC, which is the ABC Motsepe team for Pirates. I thought let me just get back into it slowly, but because they weren’t sure when the ABC league was going to start again, the coach decided maybe a loan would be best so I don’t miss out on more playing time," he continued.

The midfielder, who is of Portuguese origin, will set out to assist the Mother City club to beat the drop and probably chase a PSL promotion, as they are currently languishing in 14th position on the GladAfrica Championship standings, 10 points behind table-toppers Sekhukhune United.

Do you even know Dias, if yes, will this move to help his development?
