Black Leopards have bolstered their squad with the signing of experienced former Orlando Pirates midfielder Edwin Gyimah.

The burly Ghanaian utility player had been training with the Thohoyandou-based club for a while and coach Luc Eymael wasted no time in bringing him on board.

Apart from Gyimah, Lidoda Duvha also announced the arrival of former Bidvest Wits and Polokwane City striker Thobani Mncwango.

Leopards announced the two signings on Friday afternoon, whilst also stating that the two players have signed short-term deals.

Gyimah had been looking to find a new home since parting ways with the Clever Boys at the end of the 2018/19 season.

With Eymael having recently taken over at the struggling club, he will look to the likes of Gyimah to stabilise their midfield after losing Lehlogonolo Masalesa to Chippa United in the previous transfer window.

Leopards have also struggled upfront having found the back of the net on six occasions since the start of their league campaign and Eymael will hope Mncwango can solve his team's goalscoring problems.

The Belgian manager previously worked with Mncwango at Rise and Shine before the 31-year-old left to join Wits.

However, Mncwango failed to impress under the tutelage of Gavin Hunt and was shipped out at the end of the previous campaign.
