Ghana midfielder Rahim Ayew has denied making any financial demands in his purported move to Asante Kotoko.
The champions have gone cold on the move to sign the 25-year-old weeks after he took a medical with the club.
News emerged Kotoko’s dire financial state is preventing the deal from happening as they would have to honour enormous financial commitment to the Ghana international.
But the first son of Ghana legend Abedi Pele says he made no financial demands and that registration technicalities are the only thing hindering his move.
“It is not true that Kotoko will have to pay me a lot of money before I play,” Ayew told GHANAsoccernet.com.
“I didn’t ask for anything in return to play for Kotoko. I only want to play to get on with my career.
“The problem is that with the registration closed, I cannot play for Kotoko now until January.
“So I will continue to train and keep myself in shape until the time I am able to play.”
Ayew remains a free agent after parting ways with Belgian club Lierse at the end of the last European season.
