Ghana PL transfer news
It's silly season all over the world, and the Ghana Premier
League has not been left out. Key players of the various teams are
engaged in frenetic activity and rumours are rife. Here's a brief on
who is hot and who is not.
Midfielder Moro Abubakar has hinted his desire to leave the club and
find challenges elsewhere. There have been reports of serious contacts
from Berekum Chelsea and Medeama.
Sources from Kotoko, however, say the media reports that the
Reds want him are false, because of the availability of Daniel Nii
Adjei and Michael Akuffo, who both play as holding midfielders if need

lining up to take the player, as their agents have been repeatedly
trying to get Moro for trials.

According to the player, the Phobians are a big club and every player

their position. Sumaila won gold with Ghana’s Under-23 side at the All
Africa Games late last year.

However, Tarkwa-based Medeama are also in the chase. Asiedu has been
key in Dwarfs' story in their return to the Premier League last season
and he described Medeama's advances as one with "great intent and
commitment in securing" his signature.
"We have entered into a very serious negotiations and I have told them
how they can help sort out my requirements and possibly conclude issues
with Dwarfs. Hearts have also contacted me on a few occasions and Dr KK
Sarpong (Kotoko Chairman) also spoke to me last season," he told
Apart from concentrating on the African Champions League, the former
Ghana Premier League winners are also in the hunt for right back

Sources say a move with fellow regional giants Chelsea is

Hearts of Oak are preparing a bid for Bechem United striker Richard
Addai, but the player's focus is on an impending date with Italian side
Parma for trials.
The youngster impressed for the relegated Premier League side by
netting 11 times in their debut season in the top-flight. Bechem United
would struggle to hold onto their prize asset due their present status
and Hearts want to cash in and lure the player away from the club.
Addai joined Bechem United from Aduana Stars this past season.
