Nana Kwasi Gyambibi, the special aide to Chief Executive Officer of Asante Kotoko has confirmed that Simba SC have enquired about the availability of two of their players in the wake of their friendly clash against the Tanzanian side on Wednesday.

The Porcupine Warriors were invited for an international friendly match by the Tanzanian giants as part of their annual Simba Day celebration.

The Ghana Premier League giants held the hosts to a 1-1 stalemate at the Uhuru Stadium in Dar es Salaam.

Striker Obed Owusu shot the Porcupine Warriors in front on the stroke of half-time after tapping in a rebound from Michael Donkor's shot before Emmanuel Okwi equalised for the hosts on the 77th minute.

Goalkeeper Felix Annan saved a crucial penalty by the 84th minute to save Kotoko from losing the game.

"Officials of Simba FC after the match asked about Sogne Yacouba's availability as well as Douglas Owusu and other players," he told Oyerepa FM.

"They told us we are going to hear from them very soon on one of these players. Other officials from Morocco and Cote d'Ivoire who were present also enquired about Sogne Yacouba especially."

"We won't be in a haste to do anything but will wait till we get an official bid from them and we take a decision."

"Am only an assistant to the Executive Chairman and so will report to him all that has happened."
