Transfer buzz continues in GPL
Hotshot Yahaya Mohamed continues to be premium material for Premier League clubs, as Robert Dabuo and James Bissue get ready to shift allegiances.
Medeama have confirmed their interest of Yahaya Mohamed. Currently the league's top scorer with ten goals in eleven games, the player has been rewarded with a callup to the national team's provisional squad for the African Cup of Nations.
The Tarkwa side are fourth on the table with 20 points in eleven games, and a lack of finishing finesse has been identified as a possible stumbling block to their chances of annexing the title.
"At the moment I'm just focusing on my club duties with Amidaus, because they are the ones buttering my bread," the player told supersport.com via text.
A month ago, Medeama had confirmed their lack of interest in the coming transfer window, after spending heavily in the preseason "silly season". But now that has changed, with the charge on Yahaya a priority.
An official communication for the player was sent from the Tarkwa side to Kotoko, who own the player at the moment. No responses have been made, according to supersport.com sources in Kumasi.
James Bissue, one of the quietly effective strikers in recent seasons in the league, has stopped his pursuit of a foreign club and will join Hearts.
According to his former club officials who spoke to supersport.com, Bissue has been bent on 'greener pastures' in Europe for the past yearm which led him to Israel. However, a period with Hapoel Be’er Sheva yielded poor returns, and the Phobians seek to capitalize on his availability to boost their attacking options.
Bissue will start playing for Hearts in the second round, which begins in four games time. His agents are currently in talks with the club for a multi-year deal, suspected to be for three years from this post-season.
Meanwhile, should the 21-year-old join the Accra club, he would likely partner Gilbert Fiamenyo, who has become a bit of a dud buy for the club. A knee injury has frustrated the player since signing at the turn of the season.
"I am still working hard to come back to normal and it worries me that after being bought for so much, I haven't even kicked a ball," the worried former Lions striker tells supersport.com.
Long-serving Wa All Stars goalie Wa All Stars is being courted by AshGold. News in the past three days indicate that the player, hugely respected for his discipline and forthrightness, will be signed by the Obuasi side pending any agreements.
But supersport.com understands that Dabuo values playing time above all things, and is reluctant to sign for the Miners purely because of the presence of Fatau Dauda, who has been the club's number one.
Also Wa All Stars captain, he would face great competition from AshGold skipper Dauda, who has recently been called to play with the national team provisionally assembled by Kwesi Appiah.
