Ghanaian striker's PSL move hits snag

Premiership

A Ghanaian striker's move to Black Leopards has hit a snag, with the player running out of time to find another PSL team.

Nicholas Gyan has been trying to land a deal in South Africa since November last year and finally arrived in the country last week with the hope of impressing the Lidoda Duvha technical team.

Now, just as former coach Luc Eymael said last year, there is no space for another foreigner in the Leopards squad and Gyan has been told to look elsewhere for employment.

The 22-year-old has now joined Limpopo rivals Baroka for training in the hope of earning a deal there.

"Eish, a lot happened for the last two days. Leopards told us their foreign quota is full," the player's representative Bheki Ndebele tells KickOff.com.

"So then yesterday morning we got a call from Baroka that the boy must come and join them for training.

"But the team has failed to make a decision on Gyan yet. The chairman said he wants more time with the boy. So there's nothing yet.

"We haven't received any calls from any clubs regarding the player so we have asked the team [Baroka] to release him as his visa is expiring on Sunday.

"We are against time. Any team that wants him, they can call us today or tomorrow."

Ndebele also revealed that the other player Koffi Yeboah, who is a defensive midfielder, is still in Ghana due to visa problems.

"The other boy, we are still having visa problems. He was supposed to arrive last Friday."

Meanwhile, Uthongathi FC coach Johnny Ferreira has dismissed reports that his side is interested in Gyan.

"I don't even know who he is, man," Ferreira says. "I don't know where the story comes from. It's dead before it starts."
