Ghana international Edwin Gyimah believes the signing of pre-contracts by players in the Premier Soccer League does nothing but distract clubs.

His Black Leopards teammate Lesedi Kapinga is believed to have signed a pre-contract with Mamelodi Sundowns.

Kaizer Chiefs' George Maluleka is on his way to Sundowns and Grant Margeman became a Mamelodi Sundowns player this season but will join his new club next season.

Black Leopards star Gyimah is of the view this is not good for the league.

"When it comes to players who have signed pre-contracts it sometimes also affects a team depending on the situation the team is in,'' he told

"Especially us in the relegation, in the bottom of the league, it really affects us because those players who have already signed pre-contracts were playing a key role in the team.

"It's really, really painful because of where we are in this situation... because the kind of players that we've lost at this moment is a big blow for us."
