Bechem United communication director Emmanuel Gyasi Atuahene has revealed that the club sold their talisman Hafiz Wontah Konkoni to Tanzanian giants Young Africans for $100,000.

Konkoni, who bagged 16 goals last season in Ghana Premier League attracted several interest including Sudanese powerhouse Al Hilal and local giants Hearts of Oak.

However, Bechem opted to make business with Yanga since the player could not agree personal terms with Hilal while Hearts of Oak struggled to match up with their asking price.

“I can confirm that Hafiz Konkoni was sold for $100,000 with 20% onwards transfer for Bechem,” Atuahene told Kumasi-based Akoma FM in an exclusive interview on Sunday.

“Hearts of Oak couldn’t have purchased Konkoni because what they offered on the table was just 10 per cent of what Young Africans offered for him.

“Konkoni was initially heading to Al Hilal of Sudan but due to personal terms which couldn’t go well he came back to Ghana and luckily Yanga showed up and they were willing to meet our demands,” he added.

Konkoni has become the second player Bechem have sold to a Tanzanian club in two years after they transferred Augustine Okrah to Simba last season following a blistering campaign in Ghana Premier League.
