Maritzburg United have identified Mamelodi Sundowns goalkeeper Reyaad Pieterse to replace Richard Ofori, whose move to Orlando Pirates is looking increasingly likely.
This website has been reliably informed that out-of-favour Pieterse has been identified as the keeper to replace Ofori if he joins The Buccaneers.
The Team of Choice are in talks with Pirates for Ofori, and it is understood they want left-back Tebogo Tlolane on a permanent deal in order to sweeten the deal for the Ghanaian.
Tlolane was on loan at Maritzburg last season and has recently returned for another season-long spell.
"It's clear that Ofori will leave Maritzburg United now and the team has identified Reyaad Pieterse, he is on his way to the province, he is set to replace the outgoing Ofori," a source close to the club tells KickOf.com.
Pieterse's agent Gary Cassisa has been unwilling to comment on his client's future.
The 28-year-old found little game-time at Kaizer Chiefs, SuperSport United and Sundowns but could finally earn regular football in KwaZulu-Natal should an agreement be reached for Ofori to leave.
As revealed on Friday, Maritzburg are also set to unveil Pieterse's Sundowns teammate Jose Ali Meza and former Polokwane City midfielder Sibusiso Hlubi as new signings this weekend.
