The transfer of Ghanaian goalkeeper, Fatau Dauda, to Orlando Pirates took a step closer to finalisation today, after he underwent a medical with Bucs.
It was revealed by the Siya crew last week that the 28-year-old was due to have his medical with the club this week, after arriving in South Africa yesterday, with his current chairman explaining that his check-up went well.
Kudjoe Fianoo, the chairman of Ashanti Gold, said that, once the medical report has been filed, ‘serious negotiations’ can begin.
Fianoo told the Siya crew, “It went okay, we’re now just waiting for a report from Orlando Pirates. I spoke to him this morning, he’s finished and he’s on his way back to Ghana.
“Pirates are waiting for the medical report, and then when the coast is clear we can enter into serious negotiations. No personal terms have been agreed yet.”
It is thought that the talented shot-stopped favours a move to Parktown and that his transfer to the Buccaneers should be completed within the next week, if all goes according to plan.
Orlando Pirates and Kaizer Chiefs will clash on July 27, with the title of 2013 Carling Black Label Cup champions up for grabs.
