Asante Kotoko striker Songne Yacouba has snubbed an improved contract from the Porcupine Warriors.

The Burkina Faso international has become a subject of interest from various clubs on the continent following his impressive performances for the Reds and the player is reported to be weighing his options of quitting the club.

Speaking to Graphic Sports in an interview, the Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of the club, George Amoako, said that Yacouba had turned down an improved deal the club offered to him in order to move on.

“As management, we are ready and committed to making the player (Songne Yacouba) happy so plans are underway to give him a befitting accommodation but he has turned down a better offer we plan giving him, which even includes a vehicle”, Mr Amoako said.

Amoako also confirmed that apart from the teams that had officially requested for the services of the player, they had not received any offer for the player.

“We have not received any new offer concerning the player. What we have is the ones which came earlier,” he noted.

The 27-year-old has won the hearts of the Kotoko faithful with his exhilarating performance since he joined the Porcupine Warriors and helped the team reach the group stage of the Confederation of African Football (CAF) Confederation Cup for the first time in 10 years.

He made 10 appearances and scored twice as well as registering some assists for his teammates throughout the Confederation Cup campaign.
