Akwaffo Boateng off to Libya



Former Kotoko winger Francis Akwaffo Boateng has finalized his move to Libya. He is now officially a player of Al-Nasr on a six-month loan deal.

The Sports, Cultural, and Social Club have completed the transfer of the winger from Ittihad Alexandria in Egypt in a double swoop.

Based in Benghazi, the move will be relieving for Akwaffo, a marauding presence in the local league in his Kotoko days. Since the Egyptian league saw a forced stoppage in February last year, Akwaffo - like hundreds of other players in the country - have been without active football.

Edet moves along

Cameroon's Edet Otobong has also moved with Akwaffo to Al Nasr for the next six months. Edet has had an eventful year, in transfer terms.

Sudan giants Al Hilal, last June, decided to cancel their contract with the Cameroonian striker following his less than ideal performances for the club.

The decision was taken after a meeting between the team's officials and the player. Otobong joined Al Hilal Omdurman from Egyptian club Ittihad Alexandria for $1.2 million (€961,000), but never managed to live up to the performances required within a team that was competing in the Caf Champions League.

Al-Nasr will be playing in the 2013 Caf Confederation Cup and are beefing up their team for the onslaught.
