The former Porcupine Warriors poster boy may join their regional rivals ahead of the second round of the season
Former Asante Kotoko striker Sadick Adams has opened negotiations with Ashanti Gold, according to reports in the local media.
The 28-year-old terminated his contract mutually with the Kumasi giants on Friday after falling out with coach Paa Kwesi Fabin. Also, striker Yakubu Mohammed, Seth Opare, Eric Donkor, Frank Sarfo Gyamfi and Edwin Tuffour Fimpong also saw their time with Kotoko ending prematurely following abysmal performances.
According to AshesGyamera‘s sources, the former Atletico Madrid youth player was accused of mutiny against the coach after he was infamously left out of the squad that lost 1-0 to rivals Hearts of Oak a fortnight ago, despite fully recovering from injury layoff.
Although, Sadick finished last season as Kotoko’s topscorer in all competitions with 10 goals, including the hat-trick against Hearts the won Kotoko the FA Cup trophy in Tamale, he has been struggling with injuries and has made only two appearances so far this season.
However, according to our checks, he Ashanti Gold owner Dr. Kwaku Frimpong and coach C.K Akonnor have a long-time admirers of Sadick’s footballing style and would want to strengthen their attack with his experience in their bid clinch the league trophy for the second time in four seasons.
Sadick will become the second former Kotoko player to recently join the Miners after Richard Osei Agyemang, if negotiations go through as planned.
Ashanti Gold top the log with 21 points after 11 games, four points above Kotoko.
