Transfers of Tuesday, 13 November 2012
Ghana and Smouha striker Samuel Affum is close to joining Swiss Super League side Young Boys when the winter transfer window reopens.
Smouha have agreed to offload their Ghanaian striker Samuel Affum to Swiss Super League side Young Boys for $ 1.5 million next January, Ghanasoccernet.com reports.
Young Boys coach Martin Rueda asked the club's management to sign Afum to replace striker Emmanuel Mayuka who joined English side Southampton last August.
Alexandria-based Smouha rejected a $1.5 million offer from Ahly to sign Affum in June as well as rejecting a loan offer from Korean K-league side Daegu.
Affum still has two years left on his contract with Smouha.
The 23-year-old striker Affum was Smouha’s top scorer with eight goals before the cancellation of the Egyptian Premier League in February due to the Port Said massacre.
