Kotoko Making U-Turn On Soulama?

Slm2Kumasi Asante Kotoko are reported to be attempting to make a u-turn to sign former goalkeeper Soulama Abdoulaye after news emerged that arch rivals Accra Hearts of Oak are yet to conclude the signing of the Burkinabe international.

Kotoko management team member, Alhaji Lamin was reported to have contacted Soulama and his manager last Sunday evening and tried to lure the player back into the camp of the Porcupine Warriors but the response was negative.

The player and his manager insisted that the boy is no longer interested in playing for the red and whites as he has finally settled on playing for the rainbow boys.

Soulama Abdoulaye parted ways with the fabulous boys on the 6th of August 2014 on mutual consent, with the player citing lack of enough playing time as his reason for leaving the club.

Soulama recently returned from international duty where he captained the team against Lesotho in which the Stallions of Burkina Faso defeated the Basothhos’s.

They proceeded to Angola and defeated The Palancas Negras by 3-0 on Wednesday, September 10.

Soulama was expected to have completed his medicals yesterday, September 15 and proceed to sign a three-year contract with Accra Hearts of Oak.

Meanwhile, Ivorian striker, Ahmed Toure has refused to show up for the Hearts of Oak medicals ahead of sealing his move to the club.

Hearts sources say even though the striker is demanding GH?100,000 and a car from the Phobians before signing the deal, the club say they will be willing to meet the demands of the striker and his managers only if the striker successfully goes through the compulsory medicals required for all players of the team.

All players at the club has been taken through the compulsory medicals ahead of the new season and the Phobians say the deal can only be sealed if the striker shows up for the compulsory medicals.

“Ahmed Toure has made some demands but we think before we meet those demands he will have to pass our compulsory medicals but all our efforts to reach him to get that done have failed to our surprise”.
