AFC Leopards Ghanaian striker Gilbert Fiamenyo will link up with the rest of the squad next week.
The former Djurgadens IF striker was signed by Ingwe in August last year, a month after the KPL mid-season transfer window had been closed.
He was thus not registered and sat out as AFC Leopards struggled to avoid relegation in the second leg.
AFC Leopards CEO Ronald Namai has confirmed that the player will now link up with the team for pre-season training.
Fiamenyo has previously featured for Swedish club Djurgadens IF home to Kenyan international Michael Olunga. He has also featured for Hearts Of Oak and Ebusua Dwarfs in Ghana among other clubs.
Meanwhile, Chapecoense, the Brazilian football club devastated by an airline crash, will sign up to 20 players for the new season and are reserving shirt numbers for two of the survivors in the hope they can play again.
Almost all the team’s senior players were killed when their plane crashed in Colombia on 28th of November 2016.
The small club from southern Brazil were heading to Medellin to play Atletico Nacional in the final of the Copa Sudamericana when their plane crashed into a mountain, killing 71 people.
Director of football Rui Costa said the club would sign between 18 and 20 new players before they start their season on 26th of this month with a home game against Joinville.
