Edwin Gyimah confirms Orlando Pirates deal in style

Bucs have continued to strengthen their squad ahead of the 2015/16 Absa Premiership season, following the arrival of Gyimah from Matsatsantsa on Friday

Orlando Pirates have completed the signing of Edwin Gyimah from SuperSport United, and it's only a matter of time before an official announcement is made. 

The Ghana international took to Facebook to confirm his move to the Soweto giants, posting a picture of himself in a Bucs' T-shirt on the eve of the fifth edition of the Carling Black Label Cup.

Gyimah, who spent last season on loan at Mpumalanga Black Aces, had been in talks with Pirates since leaving the Mbombela-based club at the end of the 2014/15 season. 

Dr Irvin Khoza was quoted on several media platforms confirming the club's desire to sign the 24-year-old player from Matsatsantsa.

Head coach Eric Tinkler has already told Goal that Bucs can only sign one foreign player ahead of next season, meaning that they already have four foreigners - Issa Sarr, Tendai Ndoro, Felipe Ovono and possibly Gyimah - on their books, while Zambian striker Musonda Mwape is believed to be on his way out of the club.

Gyimah's versatility coupled with experience should see him walk straight into Tinkler's starting line-up, but the club has quality players who have been together for over three years now, and the former SuperSport United player will have to double his efforts to get regular game time at Pirates.

The talented player made 24 appearances in all competitions for AmaZayoni last season and scored a single goal in the process.
