Dauda Set For Pirates Medical


Indications are that Orlando Pirates have secured their target, Fatau Dauda, with the Ghanaian goalkeeper set for a medical on Tuesday, ahead of joining the Buccaneers.

The Siya crew reported earlier this week that Pirates and SuperSport United were due to battle it out for the 28-year-old’s signature, although it now seems that it will be Roger de Sa who has the keeper at his disposal next season.

 

Dauda, who was in fine form in the recent African Cup of Nations in South Africa, has long since been a target for PSL clubs, with Ajax Cape Town and Wits having expressed an interest after the Afcon.

 

However, no move materialised at the time and the crew has now been informed by the chairman of his current club, Ashanti Gold, that the player will arrive in South Africa on Monday before undergoing his medical the following day.

 

Kudjoe Fianoo, Ashanti’s chairman, explained, “Fatau is on national duty on Sunday in Lesotho, the team will travel to Jo’burg and when he arrives in Jo’burg he will be picked up by Pirates and will have his medical on Tuesday.”

 

It is thought that Pirates could announce the signing of Dauda next week, should the goalkeeper pass his medical, although there has been no confirmation of any form from the Buccaneers at present.
