Kaizer Chiefs striker Lehlohonolo Majoro could be an Orlando Pirates player by the end of transfer window on Friday, according to his agent Tim Sukazi.

Majoro's future has been the subject of speculation since late last year when it was announced that he won't extend his contract with Chiefs beyond June 2014.

And despite initially agreeing to join SuperSport United earlier this month, Majoro snubbed the Matsatsantsa deal and later signed a pre-contract with Orlando Pirates.

Goal understands that the deal for Majoro's transfer has been struck between Chiefs and Pirates, and the 27-year-old forward will join his teammates in Parktown by Friday.

Sukazi confirmed to Goal that the two clubs - Chiefs and Pirates - met on Tuesday, and that Majoro looks certain be a Buccaneer before the end of this transfer window.

"Chiefs club met on Tuesday, and I am certain that Majoro will be a Pirates player before the window closes," Sukazi told Goal.

Sukazi, who is still bitter that Majoro signed a pre-contract with Pirates behind his back, also confirmed that there won't be any players involved in the Majoro deal despite reports that AmaKhosi have requested a few players from their arch-rivals to be included as part of the transfer.

"It is a straight deal. No swap deal whatsoever. So, Majoro is moving to Pirates without any players involved," revealed Sukazi.

Goal then contacted AmaKhosi regarding the deal, and the club's football manager Bobby Motaung couldn't deny or confirm that Majoro will be a Pirates player by Friday.

"Yes, we met with Pirates and the agreement was reached, but we will address the media on what's going to happen," Motaung told Goal.

It is, at this stage, clear that the none of the involved parties are ready to make any official announcement until the deal is concluded to avoid any confusion.
