Ghana international Edwin Gyimah is targeting a move to Europe after leaving South African Absa Premiership side Orlando Pirates.
The defender-cum-midfielder was recently released by Bucs having wrote a letter to the club indicating his desire to be released last December.
Gyimah, who was part of the Ghana squad at the 2017 Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON) finals in Ghana, is now looking for a new club.
His representatives at ProSport International have revealed that the 25-year-old has received his clearance letter from the 1995 CAF Champions League winners.
“We are busy looking for opportunities for him in Europe because that is where his desire is,” a ProSport International representative said on Kickoff.com.
“There is nothing definite at the moment, but with his clearance issued before the transfer window closed, he is able to join another team outside the transfer window.”
The hard-tackling player made 30 Absa Premiership appearances for the Buccaneers after joining the club from SuperSport United in 2015.
