Issah Yakubu off to Greuther Furth



Kotoko's defensive midfielder Issah Yakubu has left Ghana for a three-week trial with German Bundesliga side SpVgg Greuther Furth.

Issah, who only joined the porcupine warriors at the start of the current season, has been the brightest spot of the side in rather difficult start to last season’s title defence.

"I’m going to do my best to impress the club and possibly earn a contract with them. I can’t say much about this deal but I will ask all Kotoko fans to back me with their prayers," Issah told reporters in a short chat before his departure from Kumasi in the early hours of Thursday.

The former Liberty Professionals holding midfielder flew out of the country in the evening after receiving his visa from the German embassy early on in the afternoon.

Supersport.com understands the deal is being brokered by Ghanaian Sports outfit, Proton Sports Limited – the same organization which struck the deal for left-back Baba Abdul Rahman while he was on loan at Kotoko last season.
