Stephen Keshi will be the new Orlando Pirates coach, according to reports in Nigeria.
Current Bucs boss Eric Tinkler has admitted that he was unsure of what the future holds.
But with Keshi signing with South African agent Tim Sukazi last month, the former Nigeria boss is reportedly on the verge of being announced as Pirates coach.
A source tells website Owngoalnigeria.com: “I can confirm to you that yesterday evening Keshi received a call from a high-placed staff of Orlando Pirates congratulating him on the job; all things being equal it will be wrapped up before the end of this week.”
Known as “Big Boss”, Keshi won the Africa Cup of Nations as a player and a coach.
