Asante Kotoko is gradually gaining massive attention in the press in the past weeks after the unveiling of their new Chief Executive Officer (CEO), Nana Yaw Amponsah.
Before the coming of the young administrator, Manhyia Palace had placed a one-year internal ban on player transfer just when the Board was constituted with the Idea of instilling consistency among the playing body.
However, according to Kumasi-based Oyerepa FM, the Board's plea has been heeded to and subsequently given the green light by Manhyia to recruit players as they ready themselves to participate in CAF Champions League preliminary round.
In view of this, head coach of the Porcupine Warriors, Maxwell Konadu has tabled four players to the Board namely, Justice Nkuuku Blay of Medeama, Shafiu Mumuni (former Ashanti Gold attacker), Latif Anabila (Ashanti Gold midfielder) and Joseph Esso ex-Hearts of Oak striker.
Hearts of Oak shockingly announced that they have parted ways with Joseph Esso after contract negotiations between the two sides broke down.
This has given Maxwell the opportunity of looking forward to working with the former Ebusua Dwarfs attacker once again since their union at the local Black Stars.
Talks between Esso, his management and Kotoko have already begun as they look to tie him down ahead of their continental engagement and the upcoming Premier League season.
Justice Blay, on the other hand, received promise from the Board of Directors after a short meeting which ensued between them during Nana Yaw Amponsah's unveiling last week.
He is believed to be a prime target for Maxwell after his splendid performance for the Porcupines during his loan spell.
Shafiu Mumuni, whose contract with the Miner's expired this year has said yes to joining Kotoko after declining numerous calls from Ashanti Gold to commit his future with them - this making him a free agent.
The same thing situation beckons Latif Anabila, who is believed to be dragging his feet - giving the Obuasi-based club a torrid time.
