Negotiations have started over a loan deal for midfielder Uriah Asante, GHANAsoccernet.com can confirm.
The teenage sensation rose to prominence in the last Premier League campaign where he featured for giants Accra Hearts of Oak.
The midfielder have however attracted interest from Thanda Zulu Royal after impressing while on pre season tour of South Africa with mother club Pure Joy FC.
“I am currently in talks with some clubs here in South Africa over a loan deal for Uriah Asante,” club director of the club Isaac Tetteh (TT Brothers) confirmed to Asempa FM.
“Scouts present during our friendly games were most impressed with Asante hence the talks but the player would only be released on a loan basis.”
Though the first option of purchase is believed to be in the hands of Hearts of Oak, the former African champions are yet to make a concrete offer for the player.
