Aduana Stars communications director Evans Oppong has denied reports that the club is interested in bringing on board David Duncan as head coach.
The former Asante Kotoko coach has been without a club since leaving the Kumasi-based side in 2016, and recent reports suggest he is the frontliner for the vacant Aduana job following the departure of Kenichi Yatsuhashi.
However, the Miner's spokesperson insists Duncan is not among the 31 coaches who have applied for the job.
"David Duncan has never been in a meeting with any Aduana Stars management member so the reports which suggest that he is close to sealing a deal with us is factually incorrect," Oppong told Goal.
"The fact of the matter is that we have received 31 applications from coaches across the globe and David Duncan didn't even apply for the vacant position.
"There are 15 foreign coaches including four Italians and a German who are hoping to replace Kenichi, so vetting process will start soon and the new coach will be announced afterwards," he added.
Oppong also revealed that the club will be signing several young players to start a rebuilding process for the Ghana Premier League and other competitions.
"Although, several big names have left the club for Europe, we are not aiming at spending so much in the market this time around. We want to sign young but talented players to blend with the old ones.
"The new coach will be mandated to build a formidable team that can conquer competitions like Ghana Premier League in the future," he added.
