The Siya crew has learnt that a goalkeeper heavily linked with a move to Orlando Pirates has said his goodbyes to his teammates, with a move to the Bucs close to being concluded.
As reported in last week’s edition of Soccer Laduma, Pirates and Richard Ofori were locked in lengthy talks regarding personal terms, with Siya sources indicating at the time that coming to an agreement on the player’s salary demands, was the missing piece of the puzzle.
Sources have since indicated that the two parties are close to reaching an agreement, with all thereafter left to do is to dot the I’s and cross the T’s.
Though the Siya crew has been informed that the Ghanaian has already said his last goodbyes to his Maritzburg teammates.
Eric Tinkler’s side was knocked out of the quarterfinals of the MTN8 competition at the hands of Kaizer Chiefs, this without the services of Ofori, whose number one spot was taken over by Bongani Mpandle this afternoon at the FNB Stadium.
Now, it remains to be seen when Pirates will look to make an official announcement regarding Ofori, where he will become their seventh signing for the new 2020/21 campaign.
