Published on: 13 May 2016

Asante Kotoko has expressed interest in signing Al Merreikh attacking midfielder Augustine Okrah who has two months left on his contract.

The former Bechem United player joined the Sudanese side two years ago after impressing in the 2013/14 league where he scored 16 goals to emerge as the top scorer of the season.

Okrah’s manager Francis Addai has noted that Kotoko have contacted him to enquire about the services of the 23-year-old.

“Augustine Okrah has two months left on his contract at Al Merreikh , he called me his club wanted to extend the contract but he told me because of the tension in Sudan he is not ready to renew his contract,” said Francis Addai

“He told me issues I cannot discuss on radio I understand him, his relationship with Al Merreikh is excellent but he has decided to part ways peacefully with the club.

“Officially Kotoko is the only club in Ghana who has officially enquired the services of the player and the player is willing to play for Kotoko. For now his team is in Tunisia preparing for a CAF Confederations cup game and when he returns to Sudan we will be putting final touches to the deal.”
