Former Orlando Pirates defender agrees to sign for Wits

Former Orlando Pirates defender, Edwin Gyimah, is believed to have agreed to sign for Bidvest Wits after spending time training with the club.

The Siya crew reported last month that the 26-year-old had arrived at training with the Clever Boys, and while it was explained that he was ‘only training’, the crew was then informed that a possible move could be on the cards next year.

It was explained at the time that Gyimah’s Swedish club, Helsingborgs IF had given him permission to train in Braamfontein and that they were ‘looking at a possible January transfer’.

While there has been no official confirmation that Gavin Hunt has opted to bring him on board, he had been training with the Clever Boys as he looks to persuade his former coach that he is deserving of a deal.

Now, according to Siya sources, Gyimah has agreed to a move to Wits and will be registered by them in January when the transfer window opens up.

Gyimah signed a two-year deal in Sweden back in March, but with Helsingborg willing to sell, a return to Mzansi always seemed like a feasible option. It remains to be seen whether a transfer fee was paid.
