Orlando Pirates are desperately trying to obtain work permits for new signings Olisah Ndah and Kwame Peprah ahead of Saturday’s DStv Premiership clash against Swallows FC.
The Nigerian defender Ndah and Ghanaian forward Peprah, who were signed by the Buccaneers prior to last week’s transfer window deadline, have been adjusting to life at the Soweto giants.
An Orlando Pirates official confirmed they were working to get the work permits sorted out so the duo would be available for selection.
“The papers should be ready,” said the official.
“We are confident that both players will be available for selection against Swallows.
“However, their participation will depend on the selections of the technical team.
“They have been here for several weeks now and are adapting well to their new surroundings at Pirates.”
Peprah, who signed a three-year deal with Pirates from King Faisal FC, said he can’t wait to play for the club.
“It was my dream to play for a big club like Orlando Pirates one day, so it was not difficult for me to choose the club,” said Peprah.
“It was my dream and thanks to God being so good that it has become a reality.
“Everything is cool as compared to Ghana. I have followed the South African league a bit and I think the difference between our league and the PSL is not all that wide so I hope things will go well for me.”
