Legon Cities Chief Executive Officer, Terry Maxwell-Aidam has disclosed that his outfit nearly signed former Asante Kotoko star Songne Yacouba in the second transfer window.

Maxwell Aidam was interacting via a virtual interview with their fans on Zoom when he made this revelation.

According to him, the club was in talks to sign the Burkinabe International but was unable to reach a deal at the last minute.

“We [Legon Cities] talked to Songne Yacouba for a possible transfer but couldn’t reach a deal with him and his representatives at the last-minute”, he said.

Songne Yacouba left Asante Kotoko after the expiration of his contract in March and has been on the radar of most Ghanaian clubs before the season was suspended.

Yacouba was reported to have signed for Medeama SC but the deal was unsuccessful as the two parties failed to reach an agreement.

The former Stade Malian player is currently unattached.
