Aces fill 'Big Animal's' slot

Mpumalanga Black Aces have completed the signing of Zimbabwean defender Victor Kamhuka to immediately exhaust their foreign quota for the season as they bid to escape the relegation axe.
Kamhuka has been signed on a two year deal to plug the hole at the back and in central midfield where he can also play. The 20-year-old has been signed as a free agent after training with the club for a month following the expiry of his contract at Eagles in December – the club that he played for back in his homeland last year. Kamhuka arrives at Aces largely unknown as he has only made cameo appearances for the Zimbabwe Under-20 side though his physical presence makes him easily recognisable. Kamhuka, who is currently waiting the issuing of his work permit before becoming eligible to play, takes up the last foreign slot for Aces this season that coach Paul Dolezar had reserved in the hope of getting his 'Big Animal' striker from Nigeria. Besides Kamhuka, Aces have already registered four other foreign players this season Lottie Phiri (Zambia), Brice Aka (Ivory Coast), both of whom were released in January. Aces also have Ugandan goalkeeper Denis Onyango and German defender Marc Eberle on their books.
