Kotoko close to signing David Duncan?

Duncan – Kotoko bound?David Duncan is reported to be close to getting the Kotoko job after entering advanced negotiations with chief executive Samuel Opoku Nti and could be confirmed by the close of the week, reports GHANAsoccernet.com .

The former Hearts trainer has expressed interest in taking over from under-fire Mas-Ud Dramani.

The Ghanaian champions are keen to make a swift appointment to spark an upturn in results with the side enduring an unflattering start to the season.

Kotoko are keen to part ways with Dramani who has seven months left on his current deal and appears he will be pushed out irrespective of his current stance.

The club was forced to deny reports suggesting the former Ghana Unde-17 female team coach had been asked to proceed on leave amid mounting speculation surrounding his future.

The Porcupine Warriors are desperate and are looking for a man who can transform their downward spiral and many see that in Duncan.

Since being sacked at Hearts two years ago, Duncan has this season come close to returning to management at Great Olympics and Aduana Stars before each move fell apart.

Dramani has lost the support of the board, management and majority of the supporters making it easy for the club to dispense with his services without much acrimony.

The club will however need to compensate him with huge sum of money if they terminate his contract.

Meanwhile, David Duncan will receive the backing of Kotoko supporters if he gets the nod, Chairman of the Greater Accra National Circles Council of the club Emmanuel Boamah has revealed.

Duncan, a former coach of Hearts of Oak is in line to take over from Mas-Ud Dramani who has come under intense pressure to quit.

Dramani has lost support from the boardroom with growing disquiet among the playing body contributing to his downfall at the club.

The former Ghana Under-17 female team coach has vowed to stay on despite the mounting pressure but it appears his departure is imminent.

“David Duncan will get the supports of the Kotoko fans if he is appointed as new coach,” he told Asempa FM

“Duncan or any other person appointed to replace Didi will be welcomed.

“The supporters want a change because things are not working properly and there is no turning back in ensuring Dramani is replaced.ghanasoccernet.com

Duncan’s potential move to Kotoko is imminent with top officials expected to hold further discussions by the close of the week.
