Cape Town - Bidvest Wits coach Gavin Hunt has heaped praise on Orlando Pirates midfielder Edwin Gyimah for his dedication and hard work.

Hunt coached Gyimah while at SuperSport United when the Ghanaian first arrived in the country.

The utility defender subsequently left United for Mpumalanga Black Aces and earlier in the year joined the Buccaneers.

Hunt singled Gyimah as one of the few players in the PSL with potential to make their mark overseas.

"Edwin's story is funny because when I first saw him, I never thought he'd make it," Hunt told Soccer Laduma.

"He was so shy and getting words out of his mouth was a challenge, but I must say I enjoyed working with him.

"He is one of the most dedicated and committed players I have ever coached and when I left SuperSport United for Bidvest Wits, I wanted to take him along, but his price tag was just too high.

"I am happy he joined a team of Orlando Pirates' calibre and he has done well there so far. I know one day he will realise his dream of playing in Europe."
