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

Yacouba was on the radar of several clubs including the Royals following his exploits at the Porcupine Warriors since his arrival at the club in 2018.

He left Kotoko after the expiration of his contract in March

Interacting via zoom, Maxwell Aidam claimed that Cities were in talks to sign the Burkina Faso International but the deal broke down at 11th hour.

"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.

Yacouba, who is currently without a club joined Asante Kotoko on a free transfer after a successful three-week trial.

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