Pirates target to see out Asante Kotoko contract

Songne Yacouba of Asante Kotoko

The agent of striker Songne Yacouba says his client will not sign a new contract with Asante Kotoko.

Gyasi Gyantua revealed that the club and striker agreed not to discuss the possibility of extending a player’s contract.

Yacouba’s current deal with Kotoko has one year to go with reports linking him to Orlando Pirates and Al Hilal of Sudan.

Gyantua said the club was willing to sell the striker to an interested club at the right price while he waited for his contract to expire.

“It is never true that Yacouba has agreed to extend contract with Kotoko. He has one more year with the club and has agreed to honour that,” Gyantua told GNA Sports.

“Kotoko has helped Yacouba and the player too has helped the team so there is no way he would force his way out of the club.”
