Siphesihle Ndlovu has revealed why he chose to join Orlando Pirates over Mamelodi Sundowns as his next club.

The young attacking midfielder, who will be joining the Buccaneers on a three-year deal, is set to move to Pirates along with his former Maritzburg United teammate Fortune Makaringe when they re-open for pre-season training on Monday.

"First of all I have made the decision to join the black and white on my own, I've never signed with Sundowns," Ndlovu tells KickOff.com.

"Pirates brought an offer to the team [Maritzburg], and then the team sat me down and we talked about it. Ja obviously I've been always willing to play for the black and white, but then when the offer arrived I could see that this is where I could fit in.

"Their way of playing it's more of a South African way of playing football you see, it's the football I like and it's what my football capabilities can easily adapt to. They are playing attacking football most of the time, which is the kind of football I love to play, and yes I have signed for three years."
