Orlando Pirates have announced the signing of Zambian youth international striker Justin Shonga from Nkwazi United.
He will join his new teammates on Wednesday.
Although he was linked with a move to Mamelodi Sundowns, the Buccaneers have seemingly beaten the Brazilians on landing the Junior Chipolopolo's signature.
Pirates have also announced that Shonga will don the number 27 jersey under coach Milutin Sredojevic as he starts his journey in the South African Premiership.
“I am happy to be here. This is the right move for my career and my ambitions. I would like to emulate other Zambian players who have done well at the Club such as Perry Mutapa and Isaac Chansa,” said Shonga on the club's website.
