- Besiktas has reportedly made a bid for midfielder Thembinkosi Lorch
- The Turkish football club is waiting for the Bucs to respond to their R28 million bid
- Besiktas' bid came after the Bucs rejected a R30 million offer by Club Brugge
The Orlando Pirates have reportedly received a $2 million - which is around R28 million - bid for Thembinkosi Lorch.
According to The Citizen, Besiktas are prepared to pay the massive amount to the Bucs but they are yet to receive a response on the bid.
The Pirates reportedly already turned down Belgium side Club Brugge's R30 million offer for Lorch during the January transfer window.
Brugge are believed to be initiating a player overhaul, but the proposed move would see Lorch link up with his Bafana Bafana teammate Percy Tau.
Fans were left divided by news of Besiktas' bid for Lorch and while some felt it would be a good move, others said the midfielder is going nowhere.
Twitter user, @siphesihle_gee, wrote:
"Lorch is going nowhere if Khoza is still managing this kind of deals. Ask Modise, he will tell ya."
Another tweep, @37kopano, added:
"If he joins them it will be the end of his career."
Social media user, @sherrif295, said:
"Good let the pressure mount for Pirates to release the player. #Thembinkosi Lorch."
Briefly.co.za reported earlier that fans reacted to Lorch - who bagged last season's Absa Premiership player of the season award - not netting a single goal in 2019/2020.
