Asante Kotoko signing Justice Blay from Medeama seem iffy as the latter wants an enormous share of the onward transfer fee.
The Porcupines also have to beat the clock to make the deal happen on deadline day-Thursday, March 18.
Kotoko during last week sent an official letter of intent to Medeama for the service of their midfield enforcer.
The Tarkwa side in a response letter this week priced the player GH¢ 300,000 and an additional 50% of future sales.
The Reds will have to speed up their negotiations for a reduction in Medeama’s demands.
Kotoko have had a long-standing interest in Justice Blay after having a brilliant loan spell with the Porcupines during the 2019/2020 season which was cancelled. He became the fans favourite with his performances.
In an attempt to secure the deal permanently the most successful club in the Ghanaian top-flight failed to meet met the asking price and the terms in the deal.
“Medeama quoted 300,000 cedis and a future transfer fee of 40% on Justice Blay but we were also quoting 200,000 cedis and 40% onward but Moses Parker wasn’t ready” – Kotoko CEO Nana Yaw Amponsah explained why the initial deal fell through Oyerepa FM
However, nothing has changed from the position of the parent club with exception of wanting 50% of the future transfer fee as compared to the initial 40%.
