Cape Town - New Orlando Pirates acquisition Ayanda Nkosi has revealed his delight at playing for "one of the biggest teams in South Africa and the African continent" after reportedly concluding a three-year deal.

Speaking to KickOff, the 23-year-old confirmed that he had penned a deal that will ensure he remains at the Mayfair-based outfit until 2019.

"I'm very excited that I will be playing to one of the biggest teams in South Africa and the African continent. I have signed a three-year deal."

The former Maritzburg United striker enjoyed a stellar second-half of the 2015/16 season, notching up 15 appearances and netting three goals in all competitions for El La Kota.

Two of his efforts came against the Soweto giants - a winner in a league clash in February and again in the 4-2 Nedbank Cup quarter-final defeat in May.

Nkosi is the second arrival from Stars in the space of two days, after Bradley Carnell was announced as assistant coach to Muhsin Ertugral on Thursday.

The burly-forward will compete with the likes of Lehlohonolo Majoro, Thamsanqa Gabuza and Tendai Ndoro for a staring-berth.
