There has been speculation that the Sea Robbers would swoop on the striker as they look to bolster their ranks ahead of the resumption of the League title chase and the 2013 CAF Champions League.
But in a chat with KickOff.com, Pirates coach Roger de Sa expressed his reservations about Apiso, who was once on the books DRC giants TP Mazembe.
"He [Apiso] has not been scoring in the practice matches that we have been playing," De Sa says.
Asked whether or not Pirates would sign the striker, De Sa responds: "No. Nothing of that sort is likely to happen."
De Sa has been on the prowl for a striker since the transfer window opened as there is increasing uncertainty over Benni McCarthy's willingness to extend his stay with the Sea Robbers.
