The former Phobians coach is on the verge of joining the Porcupine Warriors following the departure of Paa Kwesi Fabin

Ghana FA Cup champions Asante Kotoko are in advanced talks with former Hearts of Oak and Ashanti Gold coach C.K Akonnor to replace Paa Kwesi Fabin, according to reports.

The 44-year-old was spotted in Kumasi last weekend with friends around the secretariat of the club and that has fuelled speculations about his future since he is currently unattached.

The Porcupine Warriors are without a substantive coach following the resignation of Fabin after only seven months in charge of the club, citing personal reasons for his departure.

Kotoko, who finished the first round of the suspended league in fourth place, have been in superb performance recently, securing a 1-1 stalemate with Simba FC in Tanzania and thrashing rivals Hearts 4-0 on aggregate in a two-legged friendly.

Goal understands that Akonnor could be handed a two-year contract to build a formidable side that can participate in the Caf inter-club competitions.
