Pirates target hands in transfer request at Kotoko

Songne Yacouba of Asante Kotoko

Ghanaian outfit Asante Kotoko are preparing for the exit of star striker Songne Yacouba after the Burkinabe international expressed his desire to leave the club.

Reds general manager George Amoako said the club tried to ask the striker to stay but Yacouba wants to leave

Yacouba has attracted interest from Orlando Pirates, Al Ahly and Zesco United.

Kotoko have reportedly rejected $100,000 (over R1.3 million) from Pirates for the striker’s services.

“Let’s forget about Songne Yacouba now. His services are no more needed at our club. We are ready to sell him to any club at a good price. We now have better players to replace him for our next season’s campaign” Amoako told Oyerepa FM.

“We need to move forward as a club and not to depend on a single player. Some of our players will be leaving and Yacouba is part of them.”
