The Porcupine Warriors could lose their influential striker soon

After weeks of dousing the rumours, Asante Kotoko have announced an official bid from Zambian club Zesco United for striker Songne Yacouba.

The 26-year-old Burkina Faso international’s future at the Kumasi-based side has been in the headlines, with several reports suggesting an imminent departure from the Porcupine Warriors.

However, the club had played down on the possibilities until on Monday, when chief executive officer confirmed Zesco’s request.

“Zesco United have officially written to us about Songne Yacouba and we are going to reply them soon,” George Amoah told

Yacouba joined Kotoko in January 2018, scoring two goals and providing five assists in the Porcupines’ Caf Confederation Cup campaign this season

He is yet to feature in the Ghana FA Special Competition, which is in its third matchday.

Egyptian club Al Ahly and Sudanese duo Al Hilal and Al-Merrikh SC have also made enquiries about the Burkinabe, according to reports.
