KUMASI Asante Kotoko’s spending spree is set to continue with reports indicating the Porcupine Warriors are on the verge of signing relegated Accra Great Olympics striker Kwame Boateng.

Boateng, who played for the Wonder Club last season, bagged six goals for them.

The striker is set to play a lead role in the club in the coming season with Ivorian Ahmed Toure rumoured to be on his way out.

The 22-year old will be expected to join forces with Obed Owusu and Dauda Mohammed upfront as Kotoko go in search of the league title they lost to regional rivals Ashantigold last season.

His signing will be the ninth for the club in the off season after signing Samuel Kyere, Richard Osei Agyemang and Bennet Ofori from Chelsea, Edwin Tuffour Frimpong from Liberty and Evans Quao from Medeama.

The others are Theophilus Nyame, Ernest Sowah and Halipha Sedogo.

This will represent a major overhaul for David Duncan’s side as

d campaigners such as Abeiku Ainooson, Jordan Opoku , Richard Mpong and Michael Akuffo all departed the club in the off season.

In another development, Executive chairman of Dreams FC, Kurt Okraku says he is not perturbed by the GFA Players’ Status Committee decision on the claim filed by Amidaus Professionals F.C against his team on the registration of player Daniel Gozar.

The Status Committee after careful deliberations and consideration of the claim filed by Amidaus Professionals against Dreams F.C ruled that there was enough evidence that the player Daniel Gozar is the same as Cudjoe Mensah.

They have since referred the case to the GFA Ethics Committee to investigate the registration of the player.

Kurt Okraku in reacting to this noted that he is not worried because as far as he is concerned they never engaged in any fictitious registration of the player.

“There is no case, the case is over for me I am a football man and the case came to a dead end after the reviews committee’s ruling. Amidaus’ issue is totally different from what Tema Youth filed and this distinction must be very clear.”

“Dreams FC played in a 30-week league competition and led the table for 29 weeks, we are the undisputed champion of the zone.”

“The strongest and best club of the zone and we are happy that we are in the Premier League and we are going to be very competitive.”-Myjoyonline
