Ghana midfielder Emmanuel Agyemang-Badu has revealed “playing his part” in convincing countrymen David Accam and Patrick Twumasi at new club Bursaspor.
The former Kotoko man sealed a loan move from Udinese last week. But the managers of his new Turkish home are busy in the transfer market in a bid to augment the squad further.
And in their quest, the two other Ghanaians who play in the MLS and Kharzastan respectively are on the radar. Footy-Ghana.com can confirm that in the past week, Bursaspor have been in contact with the representatives of these players and their clubs.
Asked about the move for Accam and Twumasi during an interview with Olay TV on Monday, Agyemang-Badu confirmed he could not go far but only gave them an insight about his observations since arriving at the club.
“Football you cannot do it alone on the pitch – you do your best and others compliment so we can achieve our targets.
“I spoke with Accam and Twumasi, of course we are from Ghana and we all play for the national team. They are my friends; we will see what happens.
“I’m just a footballer; I need to concentrate on the pitch and leave everything to management to decide,” Badu said.
He continued: “Even Twumasi, I spoke to him this morning.
“I said that I have been here for five days and the team has really welcomed me very well. Most of the players speak English so things have been easy for me, the management, media have been smiling to me at the moment and that is a plus. The supporters have been wonderful.
“That’s [generally] what I told them and they are very happy. We will see what will happen.”
