Orlando Pirates have confirmed that a deal has been reached to sell striker Tendai Ndoro to Saudi Arabia club Al-Faisaly.

The 32-year-old burst onto the South African scene after joining Mpumalanga Black Aces from Chicken Inn in his native Zimbabwe four years ago.

A seemingly dream move to the Buccaneers followed in 2015, but after a bright start he faded away, scoring just one goal after the turn of the year. He has been in an out of the side recently, and will now hope for better fortunes at Al-Faisaly, where the deal hinges on him completing his medical.

"We can confirm an agreement for his sale to Al Faisaly Football Club," Pirates said in a statement. "Ndoro is due to undergo a medical in Saudi Arabia before the deal is finalised."

Pirates are under new management in coach Milutin Sredojevic, who has been tasked with turning the sinking Buccaneers ship around.
