Cape Town - Orlando Pirates coach Roger de Sa is eager to sign Ghanaian striker Yakubu Mohammed, according to a report on the Soccer Laduma website.

The 24-year-old's club chairperson at Ashanti Gold, Kudjoe Fianoo, is happy to accept the highest bid for the player, which could open up a bidding war between local clubs here in South Africa, with Pirates, Wits and Maritzburg United reportedly after his services.

It has been reported that Ashanti Gold are seeking a fee of between R1m and R2.5m for "Yak", who was top scorer in last year’s Ghanaian Premier League.
