Gyamfi insists he will stay at Kotoko despite Zesco interest

15 Apr 2019, 16:25

Asante Kotoko midfielder, Emmanuel Gyamfi, says he will not force a move away from the Porcupine Warriors despite interest from Zambian giants Zesco United.

Gyamfi believes the ideal time to depart the Porcupine Warriors would be when the club offered its blessings for him to move on with his career.

Speaking to Graphic Sports, the midfielder explained that it would be a dream come true for every player to pursue his career abroad when the opportunity availed itself but he wouldn’t force his way out.

The 24-year-old, however, refused to rule out any possible move away from the Kumasi-based club when the right offer came but insisted that would happen with the blessing of the club.

“I read online that ZESCO is interested in me and Kotoko is insisting that they will consider negotiating with them to allow me to leave, but as I talk to you, no management member of the club has informed me about any move and I am committed to staying with Kotoko if the need be. I will never force a move away from the club because I need to have the club’s blessing when I’m leaving. That is not to say I won’t consider any deals when they arrive,” Gyamfi said.

Gyamfi has been an instrumental figure in the Kotoko set up, having impressed in their CAF Confederation Cup campaign as well as the ongoing Ghana Football Association (GFA) Normalisation Committee (NC) Special Competition.

There have been reports suggesting that ZESCO and other African clubs have expressed interest in signing him after a run of impressive performances for Kotoko.

When asked whether he had indeed received offers from such clubs, Gyamfi admitted to receiving several contacts from northern Africa clubs and European clubs but he was yet to enter into negotiations with any of them.

“There have been several contacts from clubs within North Africa and Europe but I need to take my time to make a choice,” he concluded.
