Cash-strapped Norwegian top-flight Sognal failed reach to an agreement with Asante Kotoko for midfielder Albert Bruce, GHANAsoccernet.com can reveal.
The 19-year-old underwent a successful trial and passed a mandatory medical at the relegation threatened side three weeks ago but was unable to tie down a permanent deal after talks broke down.
Sognal, under severe financial difficulties failed to meet Kotoko’s asking prize for the talented enforcer.
“It was a successful trial and passed a medical but they are going through some financial difficulties,” Bruce said
“They couldn’t reach an agreement with Kotoko due to the money involved.
“There are many other offers on the table that I’m looking at and hopefully I should be out of this country again.”
GHANAsoccernet.com can reveal that Polish giants Legia Warsaw are considering re-engaging the former Berekum Arsenals enforcer, four months after deciding against signing him on a permanent basis.
He was handed a two-week trial by English side Sunderland last December but failed to honour the invitation due to a late acquisition of his traveling visa.
It’s however unclear if he will be given another shot after the English side requested for three players from the club for assessments.
Bruce has three months left on his contract at Kotoko.
