Asante Kotoko winger, Augustine Okrah, is on the verge of sealing a permanent move to Moroccan powerhouse RS Berkane, multiple reports in his native Ghana have claimed.

The 27-year-old arrived in the North African country on Wednesday, November 25 to complete formalities.

The hugely talented forward is expected to sign a permanent contract after passing a mandatory medical.

Okrah's contract with the Porcupine Warriors runs out in January - meaning the Ghanaian giants are desperate to get a deal for him to avoid losing him for free.

The two-time African champions have sanctioned his move to the CAF Confederation Cup champions with both parties believed to have reached an agreement.

The former BK Hacken and Al-Merrikh winger joined Asante Kotoko in 2019 after a one-year spell with Indian Super League side NorthEast United.

Morocco's RS Berkane beat Egyptians Pyramids 1-0 in the first one-legged Confederation Cup final to win their first African title back in October.
