Soweto giants Orlando Pirates on Tuesday announced the signing of high in demand Maritzburg United goalkeeper Richard Ofori as the club's latest signing.

"The 26-year-old has signed with the Buccaneers after agreeing terms to a three a year deal," the club said in a statement.

"I am very happy to be here. It is a dream for me to be a part of this exciting squad and to work with the technical team," the Ghanaian said.

"I also look forward to meeting my new team-mates and being part of this exciting new project."

Ofori joined Maritzburg United in 2018, making 64 appearances in all competitions including nine international caps for the Ghanaian national team.

Meanwhile, Pirates also confirmed that Tebogo Tlolane will move in the other direction to Maritzburg United on a season-long loan.
