"Asante Kotoko SC have confirmed the capture of Mohammed Vie Sylla after the player successfully went through regulatory processes," a club statement said.

"The central midfielder signed the dotted lines in a two-year deal that makes him the second player to join the Porcupines in this window.

"Kotoko are looking to beef up the FA Cup winning squad of last season as we look set to challenge for more silverware in the coming season," the statement added.
