Johannesburg - Bernard Morrison has revealed there were other Premiership clubs interested in his services, but his 'heart' told him to join Orlando Pirates.

The Pirates forward was reportedly a target of Mamelodi Sundowns after the player impressed against them for AS Vita Club in the CAF Champions League.

The Ghanaian featured against the Brazilians in a Champions League second round match last April where he is said to have caught the eye of Pitso Mosimane.

Nonetheless, Morrison opted to sign with Bucs despite there being real interest shown from the side from Chloorkop. Platinum Stars were another PSL outfit who showed an interest in acquiring his services.

The 23-year-old revealed that he was on the radar of both clubs but his heart told him to join Muhsin Ertugral's side. The attacker has started two league games in the wins over Ajax Cape Town and Golden Arrows.

The player told Soccer Laduma: "Everything happened after the CAF Champions League match against Sundowns in the DR Congo, when we won the match 1–0. After that game, I started receiving calls from South Africa.

"Sundowns, Pirates and even Platinum Stars wanted me to come over, but you know, in football, it's all about where your heart tells you to go. I thought about it and I told myself that I should join Pirates."
