The midfielder was part of Bafana Bafana’s short-lived COSAFA Cup campaign and played in the penalty shoot-out defeat to Botswana.
It has been known that Mamelodi Sundowns once fancied Motupa but now an unnamed Baroka official reveals that the player is headed for Parktown.
"He is going to Pirates," said the official, reports KickOff.com.
"The chairman of the club is the right person to speak to as he is the one handling the player's deal to Pirates."
