South Africa Premier Soccer League side Mpumalanga Black Aces have announced that Ghana midfielder Edwin Gyimah has joined them on a permanent deal.

Reports claimed Gyimah had been loaned to AmaZayoni from SuperSport United in one of the shock transfers this season.

The 23-year-old was a key player for SuperSport United last season and targeted by European clubs

But statement by Mpumalanga Black Aces read: “Aces today met with the agent and player and signed an outright purchase for a permanent transfer to AmaZayoni.”

Aces chairman Mario Morfou was excited to have negotiated a genuinely top-class player and now firmly believes that the squad has a pedigree to be very competitive this season.

"Edwin is an excellent player and a genuine marque signing and we are delighted to have him playing in the Aces colours this season," Morfou who told that despite media utterances of a loan deal, the player had been bought for an undisclosed fee.

Gyimah will join Aces at training today and is expected to play a friendly against Baroka FC on Saturday.

    I'm not happy with this move. Edwin is one of the best holding midfielders in the PSL, and he doesn't deserve to go and play for such a small team.
