Cape Town - Mpumalanga Black Aces have made the first purchases of foreign talent for the next Absa Premiership season by adding Ghanaian defender Kwabena Adusei and Zimbabwean midfielder, Peter Moyo to their squad for the upcoming 2014/15 campaign.
Both had been spotted by the club during the Chan-2104 tournament in South Africa at the start of the year and have signed long term contracts, the club announced.
Aces, however, did not give any details of the individual deals.
The 27-year-old Adusei moves from Ghanaian champions Asante Kotoko. He also previously played for Hearts of Oak and was on the fringes of Ghana’s squad for the upcoming Soccer World Cup, but fell out of the final preliminary squad.
Moyo moves from Bulawayo-based club Highlanders and was a regular for the Zimbabwean team who surprised by advancing all the way to the semi-finals of the 2014 CHAN tournament.
Injury keeps Moyo out of Zimbabwe’s squad for this weekend’s African Nations Cup qualifier against Tanzania in Harare but he did feature in the first leg in Dar-es-Salaam a fortnight ago.
Moyo turns 26 in July.
This past season Aces had Ofenste Nato (Botswana), Onyekachi Okonkwo (Nigeria) and Method Mwanjali and Tendai Ndoro of Zimbabwe as their foreign contingent with Clifford Mulenga (Zambia) and Denis Masina (Swaziland) now regarded as locals.
