Asante Kotoko reach Gh¢210k deal with Berekum Chelsea for Stephen Amankona
Ghanaian giants Asante Kotoko have reached an agreement with Berekum Chelsea for the acquisition of their captain Stephen Appiah for the next three seasons.
The 21-year-old is joining the Kumasi-based club on a three-year deal worth Gh¢ 210,000 ($35,087) from Berekum Chelsea in the ongoing transfer window.
Asante Kotoko are expected to announce the signing of Stephen Amankona after a mandatory medical examination this week.
The Berekum Chelsea talismanic attacker has been one of the top performers in the Ghana Premier League for the past seasons.
Amankona has managed to score eleven (11) goals in 28 appearances for Berekum Chelsea in the 2020/21 Ghana Premier League season.
He also scored four times for his outfit in the FA Cup competition, propelling them to the semi-finals.
He played an instrumental role in Ghana U20 qualification to the 2019 Africa U20 Cup of Nations in Niger.
Amankona was loaned out to Hungarian side MTK Budapest in 2019 but failed to sign on a permanent basis due to contractual disagreement between both clubs.
