Cape Town - Former Orlando Pirates midfielder Edwin Gyimah has joined seven-time Swedish champions Helsingborgs following a successful week-long trial with the club.

The 26-year-old Ghana international signed a two-year contract with the second-tier outfit and will aim to help his side gain promotion to the top-flight.

"We are pleased to announce that the Ghanaian Edwin Gyimah has signed a two-year contract with Helsingborgs IF," a statement on the club's website read.
