Cape Town - Mpumalanga Black Aces have bolstered their squad significantly after securing the services of striker Kpah Sherman and defender Ashraf Hendricks.

Sherman, 23, joins AmaZayoni from Tanzanian outfit Young African Sport Club on a three-year deal, having being tracked by the Premiership club for over a year.

30-year-old Hendricks signed on a free transfer after he parted ways with Moroka Swallows at the end of the 2014/15 campaign.

Commenting on the capture of Liberia international Sherman, Aces chairman Mario Morfou told the club's official website: "He's an excellent player and arguably one of the best players we have ever signed and 'yes' we are relieved to finally be able to formally welcome him to AmaZayoni.

"He will be an ideal partner upfront with Collins Mbesuma and I'm confident he will be amongst the top goal scorers in the league this season."

Hendricks, meanwhile, has linked up with Aces after putting pen to paper on a one-year deal, which carries the option for a second year.

He told KickOff: "I have signed with the club on a year deal, with a one-year option to renew.

"I'm very excited about the move and we've got a good coach here in Muhsin Eturgral. He has huge ambitions and the club is ambitious, and I've got ambition too."
