Former Aduana Stars captain Daniel Darkwah could seal a move to Asante Kotoko by the close of week, Footy-Ghana.com gathers.
The left-sided defender cum winger completed his contract with the league champions at the end of the 2016/17 season and opted to seek new challenges elsewhere.
Darkwah is scheduled to appear before the Ghana FA Players’ Status Committee at the FA’s Secretariat this Thursday for his free agent clearance and once that is done, the 26-year-old will be Kumasi bound.
In recent months, he received offers from the Porcupine Warriors, Mexico’s Murcielagos, a club in Zambia and a trial opportunity at South Africa’s Maritzburg United.
Footy-Ghana can confirm that Darkwah was in South Africa prior to the start of the year and trained with the Absa Premiership side for close to two weeks until an injury scuppered the potential deal.
Darkwah returned to Ghana last week and per our checks, has been holding talks with the Porcupine Warriors who we also understand are willing to sign him on despite the injury.
Asante Kotoko are keen on signing a natural left-back to provide competition for Eric Donkor, the only recognized player in that position in the side’s squad for the upcoming season.
Meanwhile, former Inter Allies striker Frederick Boateng who has been featuring for Kotoko in the ongoing Ghalca G8 Tournament looks set to be announced as a new acquisition by the club.
