Sunderland gets first refusal of players in Kotoko deal

Dr. sarpong with Sunderland's Ellis Short in conversation

Sunderland have worked out a deal with Asante Kotoko which sees the English club get first refusal of talents from Ghana.

This agreement was reached in the ongoing partnership talks between the Ghanaian champions and the English Premier League club.

The Black Cats have mandated Kotoko to search for the best talents in Ghana on their behalf.

These players, when found, will be first offered to Sunderland before other offers are heard.

The English club will also have Kotoko groom some of its players while work permits are secured for them in the UK.

“Sunderland have proposed to use Kotoko as their scouts for Africa,” Kotoko’s International Relations Consultant Kwame Baah Nuakoh said.

“We may be given the players to groom and work towards qualification for work permits in England.”

Kotoko will represent Ghana in next season’s CAF Champions League following their domestic Premier League feat last season.

CANT U SEE U HVE BEEN LEFT BEHIND?. HOW DO U INTEND TO DO THIS IF U ARE …“We may be given the players to groom and work towards qualification for work permits in England.”

  2. Abrantie - In Da House says:

    So what do you people mean by “refusal of players” here. I don’t get it right.. Or is it yet again one of the stupid journalism by GSN and in GH in general?

  3. Tanko says:

    Abranti3, Bo ho biyom!

  4. KT says:

    I’ll condemn any club, big or small, Hearts or Kotoko, Kwaebebrim or Bofoakwa, who do this. This is shameful. IFFHS’s African Club of the Century, now a scouting club? One of Ghana’s biggest clubs? How? This means we are just joking here. Another form of slavery altogether. Aaaahhh!!!! And we want our league to rival EPL? It cant even rival Egyptian League, or even the Zambian League. This is a disgrace. Will El Ahly or Zamalek do this? I don’t think so!! I beg to differ.

  5. MousePad says:

    You illiterates do not understand English yet you are always here insulting GSN journalists. Let me school you a little.”First Refusal” is the chance of buying something before the offer is made to potential buyers. So in this case Kotoko will offer players to Sunderland FIRST before any offers are made elsewhere.

  6. Robeen says:

    All Ghanaian players should master the English language, to avoid barrier of communication and contractual discrepancies. This is important.

  7. Bohyeba, Knust says:

    Mousepad, thank u for the explanation. Pls guys, this is a social network so stop using harsh words or insults
