Orlando Pirates have reportedly signed Mamelodi Sundowns target Emmanuel Daniel on a pre-contract

According to reports Nigeria, Mamelodi Sundowns target Emmanuel Daniel has signed a pre-contract with the Buccaneers.

The 23-year-old was reportedly on the verge of signing with the Pretoria giants, but Pirates have now beaten the Parktown-based outfit to his signature.

The Enugu Rangers goalkeeper is set to join the Soweto giants in June.

Daniel is seen as direct replacement for Equatorial Guinea international Felipe Ovono, who parted ways with Bucs earlier this week.

The Nigerian under-23 keeper comes with some pedigree as he was part of the broze medal winning Nigerian team at the 2016 Rio Olympic Games.
