Cape Town - AS Vita midfielder Bernard Morrison has revealed he is on the verge of signing for Absa Premiership outfit Orlando Pirates.

The 23-year-old winger, who is also comfortable in a striker's role, joined AS Vita from AshantiGold in August 2015.

However, following the recent departure of Eric Tinkler and subsequent appointment of Muhsin Ertugral, it remains to be seen whether Pirates will push through a move for the Ghanaian.

That being said, Morrison believes a move to the Soweto Giants is on the verge of being agreed.

"The club has informed me that the negotiations are going well and the deal could happen anytime soon," Morrison told KickOff.

"The PSL is a big league. I'm very excited about the opportunity of coming down to South Africa and playing for a big team like Pirates."
