Paperworks to be finalized before October 9 transfer deadline.

Wing-forward Stephen Amankona is finally joining Asante Kotoko after weeks of protracted negotiations.

An agreement over a $25,000 (appx. GH¢150,000) transfer fee to be paid in three instalments – on October 11, February 5 and June 5, 2022, was eventually sealed between the Porcupine Warriors and Berekum Chelsea Wednesday night, has confirmed.

The deal appeared to be virtually off in the past fortnight when Kotoko suddenly dragged feat over a cut-price $35,000 demand from the Bibires.

Kotoko, at this stage, were comfortable to part with $10,000 less in exchange for the economic rights of Amankona.

But negotiations resumed following the intervention of club great and ex-Black Stars coach Kwasi Appiah.

Both parties also finally settled on a 30% cut as onward share to Berekum Chelsea in the event of a future sale of the player.

The 21-year-old has already sealed personal terms for a three-year contract with Kotoko.

The transfer, at the time of this report, is subject to the completion of all paperwork between the two clubs before the 2021/22 season’s October 9 deadline day.

Currently in Berekum, the player will be setting off to Accra in order to join his new teammates by the weekend at their Dubai pre-season training camp.

Stephen Amankona has been the star man for Berekum Chelsea over the past three years. He scored 11 goals and provided 5 assists in 28 appearances in the 2020/21 GPL.

Amankona is seen as a direct replacement for Emmanuel Gyamfi who was released by Kotoko days ago.
