TP Mazembe have completed the signing of Berekum Chelsea midfielder Gladson Awako for a confirmed  $400,000 deal. 

The 22-year-old has signed a five-year deal with the Congolese giants after passing a medical on Monday.

The former Ghana Under-20 star has already begun training with the Lubumbashi-based side.

The club’s Accra Representative Nana Oduro Sarfo, who led the negotiations has confirmed details have been sorted out.

“I have received everything and brought it to Ghana. I received cash and so they don’t owe us,” Sarfo told Kumasi-based Fox FM

“They paid $400,000 for his services and so we can confirm that the deal is officially concluded.

“They were initially reluctant  because other clubs were prepared to take $150,000 for the services of their players.

“But we are a professional club with strong bargaining power and so we concluded on the said amount.”

The potential of the exciting former Heart of Lions pocket size midfielder has never been in doubt since he emerged on the local scene and his departure will be a massive blow to Chelsea fans.

He was a member of the Ghana’s Under-20 team that clinched Africa’s first ever gold medal at the 2009 World Youth Championship held in Egypt.

    which other clubs were prepared to take $150,000 for their players? Is it not possible for this guy to speak without innuendos? did they tell you that other clubs were selling their players for $150,000? this is cheap.
