Johannesburg - Golden Arrows on Tuesday announced the signing of Ivory Coast's former World Cup goalkeeper, Stephan Loboue, with coach Muhsin Ertugral keen on bolstering the club's problem area.

Loboue - who was part of his country's 2006 World Cup squad - and Petim come on board following Ertugral's unhappiness with the club's long-time Brazilian goalkeeper, Helton da Rocha.

"Loboue, Petim and Da Rocha competing for the goalkeeping berth it will bring the best out of each other," said Ertugral.

Arrows have also signed the Orlando Pirates pair of midfielder Clifford Ngobeni and striker Siphelele Mthembu, Ugandan midfielder Tony Mawejje, AmaZulu midfielder Sibusiso Hadebe and goalkeeper Andre Petim, on loan from Ajax Cape Town.

They will be critical to the side languishing in the bottom-half of the log despite some big name signings earlier in the season that include classy former SA Under-23 captain, Robyn Johannes.

"With the quality players we now have in our squad I believe we can aim to be among the leading teams in the league," Erugral said.
