Transfers of Wednesday, 20 February 2013
Asante Kotoko are on the verge of selling striker Kofi Nti-Boakye to an unnamed European club, reports gaining grounds in the local media suggests.
News of the sale of the 25-year-old has infuriated the club supporters especially the ones situated around the club’s base in Kumasi.
Officials of Kotoko are said to have approached second tier club Deportivo for a replacement for the ex Liberty Professionals player.
Club supporters are however unhappy with the intention to sell Nti-Boakye especially with their ambition of winning all three competitions they are currently involved in.
Kotoko have made an impressive start to the CAF Champions League while well in touching distance of current Premier League leaders Medeama SC.
They are also expected to make significant strides in the MTN FA Cup competition.
The team has already lost their best player Daniel Adjei and right-back Yaw Frimpong to TP Mazembe.
They have also center back Rashid Sumaila (at Kotoko on loan from Ebusua Dwarfs) to South African side Mamelodi Sundowns.
And the fans believe a further sale of their best players will weaken their team for the games ahead.
Some countries in Europe are set to open their transfer window despite the general closure of the secondary window in mainstream Europe.
This news comes just off the heels of an agreement to send defender Gideon Baah on loan to an unnamed Finish club.
