Ex-Pirates keeper finds new club

Cape Town - Former Orlando Pirates goalkeeper Fatau Dauda has reportedly signed a two-year deal with two-time CAF Champions League winners Enyimba in the Nigerian Premier League.

The 31-year-old joined Pirates in 2013 from Ghana's Ashanti Gold as back-up to the late Senzo Meyiwa, and never really established himself at Mayfair.

He then had a short spell at Chippa United where he accused the Chilli Boys of failing to pay him his salary, before he made a return to Ashanti Gold in 2014.

Nonetheless, the Ghana international has put pen to paper on a two-year contract with Enyimba as he looks to once more make a mark in another African country.

During his time with Bucs, Dauda made just three Premiership appearances although he remains an established international with Ghana.

The Obuasi-born star was recently named in an 18-man squad for the 2017 AFCON which begins in January.

Currently Pirates have a talented goalkeeping department with the likes of Brighton Mhlongo, Jackson Mabokgwane, Felipe Ovono and Siyabonga Mpontshane all jostling for the position.
