Kotoko are yet to settle the signing-on fees for their new recruits, a club official has confirmed.
The Porcupine Warriors have brought in as many as nine players including experienced goalkeeper Ernest Sowah as well as Theophilus Nyame from Hasaacas and Berekum Chelsea duo Samuel Kyere and Richard Agyemang and many others.
Despite the hugely publicized arrivals, the record league title holders are yet to pay their entitlements.
A member of the club’s communication outfit Solomon Ofosu Ware has confirmed plans are far advanced to settle the debt before the season kicks off.
“It is true, just like how we’ve been doing it, if you look at last season we don’t want to pay a new player without paying the old players. Like the club’s Patron, Otumfuo Osei Tutu II said on his last visit to the training ground, we want to pay all the players before the league starts both old and new,” he told Kumasi-based told Nhyira FM.
“On the part of their former clubs, I believe for now we’re done with them. It is left with the signing on fees of the players.”
The arrival of the players have sparked a wave of optimism among their teeming fans ahead of the new season.
