The management of Glo Premier League champions Asante Kotoko is on the verge of signing Medeama winger Richard Mpong for the 2012/13 league season, DAILY GUIDE SPORTS understands.
The player has almost completed all transfer formalities and is yearning to join the growing list of new recruits for the Red Army, a probe into the clubâ€™s transfer shopping has revealed.
â€śWe are in talks with him and everything looks positive that he will be part of our plans for the coming season. The deal is almost through,â€ť club PRO Listowell Yesu Bukerson said in a telephone interview.
Mpong debuted for the senior national soccer side, the Black Stars against Chile early this year.
Meanwhile, Kotoko will engage All Blacks in a friendly tomorrow at Swedru as part of preparations for the league and other assignments.
Revelations from the Garden City-based club indicate that the long awaited 14-seater mini bus pledge for winning the 2011/12 season league is ready for official hand over.
The bus is currently being branded (by Glo) before being handed over to the Porcupine Warriors.
