Asante Kotoko fail to sign Maxwell Baakoh for Caf Confederation Cup


The Porcupine Warriors were on the verge of completing a deal for the highly-rated youngster but negotiations fell through on the eleventh hour

Asante Kotoko could not conclude a deal with Karela United FC midfielder Maxwell Baakoh despite the player and his counsel arriving at the club’s secretariat on Tuesday, can confirm.

The winger initially agreed a two-year deal with the FA Cup champions but disagreement on salary as well as transfer prevented the deal to be officially concluded.

With Kotoko preparing for the Caf Confederation Cup next month, coach C.K Akonnor is in the market to beef up his squad after already signing Guinean international Naby Keita in a three-year deal this week.

According to reports in the local media, Elmina Sharks forward Felix Addo could be signed by Kotoko as well as former Wafa Academy captain Martin Antwi.

Already, Kwame Conte Bonsu and former midfielder Daniel Nii Adjei is having a trial with the club.
