Ghana defender Lee Addy has rubbished reports that he will be offloaded by Dalian Aerbin to pave the way for the club to sign Barcelona star Seydou Keita.
Supersport.com reported on Tuesday that the Chinese Super League will axe the Ghanaian centre-back to make way for the completion of Keita because of a quota system.
The league has a quota system that allows teams to have only seven foreign players at a time.
Addy is shocked at the report that claimed that he is surplus to requirement and flies in the face of the fact that the defender is one of the club’s most consistent players.
The defender, who has played in all the club’s matches so far this season but for three games when he was on international duty in June, says the report by Supersport.com is wide off the mark.
“I am shocked that they wrote this story without even cross-checking with me. The report on my future with Dalian is absolutely false,” Lee Addy told MTNFootball.com.
“They did not get their facts right. The information is freely available everywhere so I am pleading with the journalist to do the right thing in future.
“I am one of Dalian’s key players and nothing of this sort has happened to me. I am still here in China and I am ready to continue to help my team.”
Addy joined the club in January from Serbian giants Red Star after signing a three-year deal worth $2.2million.
Meanwhile, MTNFootball.com checks have shown that Chilean striker Gustavo Canales will be axed to make way Keita signing.
