Frimpong, Acheamong finally leave Kotoko



After long-rumoured moves away from the club, Ben Acheampong and Yaw Frimpong have officially left Kotoko. Acheampong is off to Angola while Yaw Frimpong makes a hop to DR Congo.

Yaw Frimpong's move to TP Mazembe would have come earlier, but for an injury he sustained in October against AshGold. The 25 year old right-back had a great season last term, so his anticipated move to Central Africa comes as no surprise.

Mazembe have already bought Gladson Awako from Berekum Chelsea as well as Daniel Nii Adjei ffrom Kotoko as they seek to strengthen their team for the impending African club competitions in the coming years.

Also, the compact Ben Aguero Acheampong will be at Angolan club Petro Atletico on a three-year deal. This will come as a relief for the 22 year old who has yearned for a move abroad for some time.

In August, Acheampong was not offered a deal by Swedish giants Helsingborg after six weeks of trials.

The former Wa All Stars player impressed on his first trial game for the Milk Cow which was against Sunderland during the pre-season, but suddenly slowed in form, rendering his impending deal dead.

He was an integral part of the Porcupine Warriors team that won the Ghana Glo Premiership last season and was also given a debut into the Black Stars in May before the 2014 World Cup qualifiers.
