Highly-rated Felix Annan is on the verge of moving away from Asante Kotoko to rivals and reigning Ghanaian champions Accra Hearts of Oak as his manager confirms talks.
With Razak Abalora set to remain as Kotoko’s first-choice keeper for the foreseeable future, having arrived for an extortionate amount of money, Annan will look to lay his claim for a starting berth elsewhere.
Rumors have been rife in the media but his manager, Philemon Baiden seem to have fuelled the speculations with a subtle confirmation of the approach from the Champions of the Ghana Premier League.
“I will tell you that a team in Ghana with a lot of following has approached us” he confirmed on Angel FM 102.9 FM.
Edging Eric Ofori Antwi out, and eventually becoming the club’s number one and skipper, Annan has had a tumultuous season at Kotoko playing third fiddle to Abalora, and Baah.
Having won their first league title since 2009, the Phobians are keen to bolster the depth of their squad as they seek to defend the title next season and excel in Africa.
