The agent of Ghana goalkeeper Fatau Dauda has exclusively told that he has received phone calls from Egyptian top-flight duo Al Ahly and Ismaily inquiry about his availability.

Samuel Okoronkwo claims the two clubs are keen on signing the former AshantiGold gloves man who is down the pecking order at Orlando Pirates.

Dauda has hinted he could leave the Absa Premiership side at the end of the season.

The 29-year-old, who will make Ghana’s World Cup squad, has been concerned by his lack of playing time.

"Fatau is goalkeeper with unique qualities, we are all not happy that his playing time has been limited but we must understand what Meyiwa means to pirates too," Okoronkwo told Ghana's leading football website,

"Anytime I talk to the coach he praises Fatau for his professionalism and the way he has handled the situation so far.

"But every player wants to play and same applies to Dauda,I have had big team across African and Europe ask about his availability.

“Last week I had a call from Al Ahly and the situation was the same he is a keeper in demand but in life everything is a passing phase you need to decide carefully."

Dauda can walk away from his Orlando pirates contract for free under one of the articles in his contract if he fails to play a number of games.

    this agent is a joker. u aint fooling anyone. how is a keeper in "demand" rotting on the bench in SA????????? surely some club would have made a deal with pirates to get him on at least a loan spell if his qualities were so "unique" as u claim..... could they not???? answer that.. get your keeper some playing time and stop paying GSN to publish this propaganda..

    U're right @1st ghanaian he goat, no club will want a third choice bench warmer goal keeper at Orlando Pirates. Duada's fate shall worsen after C Dempsy, C Ronaldo and M Klose all pumps in hatricks at the WC. If Duada will be in goal for all 3 group games, expect him to concede not less than 15 goals.
