Orlando Pirates have announced agreements for the services of Ajax Cape Town duo Abbubaker Mobara and Riyaad Norodien.
‘I am pleased to announce the successful negotiations between ourselves and Ajax Cape Town over the services of Mobara and Norodien,’ club chairman Irvin Khoza said in statement.
‘We have been given the go-ahead to make contact with both players and finalise personal terms.
‘Obviously, with someone like Mobara currently in Namibia with the South African national team, we will only be able to finalise with him and his representatives when he returns from international duty. However, we will be finalising soon with Norodien.’
Khoza also confirmed the capture of Ghanaian forward Bernard Morrison from AS Vita Club.
‘An agreement has been reached and signed after a revised offer was sent to AS Vita. We are happy with this acquisition and trust that Morrison will have a successful stay at the Club.’
The club chairman also confirmed that with these players heading to Johannesburg, some players will have to make way.
‘The club will be making an announcement next week regarding the players who will be released,’ confirmed Khoza.
Meanwhile, newly-appointed head coach Muhsin Ertugral is due to arrive at the end of the week to finalise matters ahead of the start of pre-season.
The players and rest of the technical staff are expected back on July 4.
