Orlando Pirates have completed the signing of Fatau Dauda from Ghanaian Premier League side, Ashanti Gold SC.
Soccer-Laduma predicted on Tuesday that the goalkeeper’s transfer to Bucs was imminent, after he underwent a medical with the Parktown-based side.
It has now been confirmed that the 28-year-old has penned a deal with the Soweto giants, with a high-ranking source at Pirates confirming the deal with Soccer-Laduma.
Bucs have emphasised the importance of reinforcing their squad for the upcoming 2013/14 PSL season, as well as their CAF Champions League campaign.
Roger de Sa is aiming to continue with their run in the Champions League, in the group stages, as the team looks to emulate the team of 1995, who won the prestigious competition.
With Moeneeb Josephs’ future still hanging in the balance, Bucs’ goalkeeping department needs to be reinforced. Dauda is expected to compete with Bafana Bafana goalkeeper Senzo Meyiwa and Brighton Mhlongo for the number one jersey.
Pirates are also expected to conclude a deal with last year’s Ghanaian Premier League top goal scorer, and Dauda’s teammate at Ashanti Gold, Yakubu Mohammed.
