Kotoko have completed a transfer coup by reaching an agreement with Heart of Lions for the services of goalkeeper Joseph Addo, officials of the Kpando-based side have told GHANAsoccernet.com
Addo has swerved Ashantigold to sign for the Porcupine Warriors in a move which has stunned officials of the Obuasi-based side.
The ex-Ghana youth international was believed to be nearing a move to Ashantigold but refused to sign the dotted lines for the side after they failed to meet his asking price.
Kotoko slapped in a late request with an improved offer believd to be in the region of $20,000.
The Ghanaian league champions are unsure about the future of experienced Burkinabe shot-stopper Soulama Abdoulaye and have therefore moved quickly to tie him down to a long-term deal.
He underwent medical last week and will sign a put pen-to-paper on a three-year deal.
Addo’s future has been a matter of intense conjecture in the local media after being linked with a number of clubs including Ashantigold and Ebusua Dwarfs.
