Former Orlando Pirates defender Edwin Gyimah has joined Swedish second-tier side Helsingborg IF.
The Ghana international was released from Mayfair last month, and after training in Sweden, has put pen to paper with his new club.
“We are pleased to announce that the Ghanaian Edwin Gyimah has signed a two-year contract with Helsingborgs IF,” read a statement on the club’s official website. “Edwin Gyimah has been on trial with the team of HIF and took part in the match against Kristianstad FC earlier in the preseason.
“Now the central midfielder, who can also play in the back line, signed a two-year contract with the club.”
Head coach Per-Ola Ljung says he is well-pleased with his new acquisition.
“Edwin is a player with both good power and technology,” he says. “He is highly qualified and will contribute to the squad. Although he can play in several positions, he is thought of as a central midfielder.”
Helsingborg were relegated to the second-tier via the play-offs after finishing 14th in the 16-team top-flight league, and only commence their new season on Saturday, 1 April against Trelleborg.
