Cape Town - Riyaad Norodien confessed he did not have much information about his link to Orlando Pirates but was excited to make his dream move.

The Buccaneers announced early on Tuesday morning that an agreement had been reached with Ajax Cape Town for the midfielder, as well as team-mate Abbubaker Mobara.

Although Norodien was not aware of the switch until that morning, he says the move is a dream come true and believes it will do wonders for his career.

"I still have to go in this morning to see the boss," Norodien told KickOff.

"I don't have that much information and cannot reveal anything at present. It's a dream come true - I'm still in shock!

"It's a major upliftment and boost for me... it brings about something completely different, and I'm looking forward to it. This is what dreams are made of, and you just have to take these types of opportunities as they come."

Norodien made 22 league appearances for the Urban Warriors last season and was instrumental to winning MTN8 final against Kaizer Chiefs.
