The striker will be presented as a Buccaneers this week after successfully passing his medical ahead of his mega move from Ghana

King Faisal striker Kwame Prepah will complete his much anticipated switch after passing his medical examination without a hitch on Monday, allowing the 20-year-old to put pen to paper on a deal with the South African giants before being unveiled to the media, AshesGyamera.com can confirm.

AshesGyamera.com can report that Peprah’s contract signing will take place within the offices of the club, before a timetable of presentations to the press likely on the pitch and training ground.

Peprah, who scored 12 goals in the just ended Ghana Premier League season and provided 10 assists arrived in South Africa on Saturday with King Faisal’s sporting director Nana Amankwaah Kwakye.

He was allowed to rest before meeting Pirates’ top hierarchy on Monday morning. He was then sent to the club’s medical facility for examination.

Peprah is expected to sign at least a three-year deal to bolster Orlando Pirates’ striking force as they hope to conquer South Africa this season and the continent in the near future.

Reports suggest King Faisal are negotiating for an unconfirmed onward transfer fee should Peprah leave Pirates to another club, specifically Europe or outside South Africa, in future.
