Cape Town - Orlando Pirates have reportedly signed promising young striker Eethe Khaukanani from Free State Stars.

The 21-year-old was snapped up by Pirates after impressing for Ea Lla Koto in the MultiChoice Diski Challenge.

The forward came to Bucs' attention with his performances in the MDC, and Muhsin Ertugral's team had been monitoring the player closely prior to his signing.

Khaukanani is among the competition's top scorers with six goals to his name, and Stars were said to be on the verge of promoting him to the first team.

With that said, the Bethlehem-based outfit had not offered him a professional contract and this seems to have further influenced his decision to accept Pirates' offer.

An anonymous source confirmed the move to Soccer Laduma: "The player has signed for Pirates. It is a done deal. He is a good player and Pirates have been following his progress.

"He has been getting Man of the Match awards in the MDC and is amongst the leading goalscorers so far this season."
