Ghana midfielder Emmanuel Agyemang-Badu is relishing the possibility of playing alongside international skipper Asamoah Gyan at local giants Asante Kotoko.

On the books of the Kumasi-based club before moving abroad, Badu has long held a desire to make a return in the future, while Gyan, last week, and for the umpteenth time, reiterated his wish to don the colours of the Porcupine Warriors before hanging up his boots.

“I have played for Kotoko and I will play again, and it will be very wonderful and great to play with Gyan at the same time for Kotoko," Badu told Ghana Soccer Net.

“He is one of the great guys and I know how much he loves Asante Kotoko, and that will really be great for both of us to play for Kotoko.

“I have said, time without number, that I have an unfinished business with Asante Kotoko, so I will definitely return. I can’t sign a contract with Kotoko, play only six months and leave. No!

“I have to return to finish the career there. But I don’t think we [Badu and Gyan] will meet. But it will be wonderful if we meet."

Contracted to local side Berekum Arsenal, Badu had a season-long loan stint with Kotoko before joining Spanish outfit Recreativo de Huelva in 2009.

Kayserispor striker Gyan, on the other hand, has played in Italy, France, England, the United Arab Emirates, China and presently Turkey since leaving Liberty Professionals to seek greener pastures.

Kotoko are Ghana's most successful club in the history of the local topflight, having won the title on 23 occasions.
