"Ndlovu has always wanted to play for Pirates, it's a dream come true for him," a source close to the Team of Choice tells KickOff.com.

"Both him and Makaringe are moving to Pirates next season."

Ndlovu, who scored on Wednesday afternoon against Royal Eagles to help Maritzburg keep their Absa Premiership status, was initially linked with a move to Mamelodi Sundowns.
