Ghanaian striker Kofi Nti-Boakye has signed a three-year contract with Libyan side Al Ahli as a free agent – meaning Asante Kotoko will have no share of the transfer proceeds, according to a Metro941.com report.
The 26-year-old is likely to incur the wrath of Asante Kotoko after he decided to join the Tripoli-based side as a free player which he is not.
The former Liberty Professionals and Heart of Lions striker signed the deal after passing a club medical on Wednesday.
Boakye is thus to recieve a sum of $900,000 with Kotoko getting absolutely nothing as he signed as a free agent despite having an existing deal with the Ghana Premier League champions.
The striker remains a property of Kotoko as his current deal will expire on August 10 – in three days time.
He however didn’t wait for his contract to run out before penning the lucrative deal with Al Ahli on Wednesday.
This therefore hands the Porcupine Warriors a strong platform upon which to launch a suit to pursue portions of the transfer amount realized.
The news will serve a massive hit to the finances of Kotoko who were projecting to receive a portion of the transfer fee of Boakye to shore up their books ahead of an expected recruitment drive.
