Darkwah, a former Asante Kotoko defender, was signed as a free agent having recently terminated his contract with the Porcupines to pave way for his move.

Former Kotoko frontman Mohammed joined Enyimba as a free agent having left his Kumasi-based club back in April this year.

The striker has also played for Medeama SC in Ghana's top division.

On his part, Ampiah a former Ghana youth international joined the People’s Elephant after making a switch from another NPFL side, Delta Force.

Before these latest additions, Enyimba have earlier confirmed the arrival of Cyril Olisema from Akwa United, Victor Mbaoma from relegated Remo Stars,  goalkeeper Olufemi Kayode from Lobi Stars as well as Emmanuel James from Plateau United.

Enyimba will begin their quest in the 2019/20 Caf Champions League with a tie against Rahimo FC from Burkina Faso in the preliminary qualifying round.

The first leg will be played in Burkina Faso this weekend before the People’s Elephant return home for the reverse fixture two weeks later.
