The versatile Aduana Stars defender Caleb Amankwah, has made known why he moved from Sogakope to Dormaa, saying he snubbed Asante Kotoko because the Dormaa based club were competing in the CAF Champions league.
Amankwah left WAFA after having a splendid spell with the club, having left with six months on his three-year deal he signed with WAFA.
In an interview with Don Summer on Angel Sports, the 22 year old defender revealed that he signed for Aduana Stars because of the African club had the chance to play in the African inter-club competition.
“When I was leaving WAFA, I had offers from both Asante Kotoko and Aduana Stars. I sat down with my parents and agent and they advised me to choose Aduana ahead of Kotoko because of CAF Champions league, which I did. Also, I wanted to play for a team where I can settle in so well. Aside that Aduana’s bid for my signature was higher than that of Kotoko’s own” Caleb told Angel Sports.
“I had the opportunity to join a club at Tunisia but the deal broke down because Kotoko came again wanting my service before the NC special tournament. The deal fell off because Kotoko wanted me to ask for transfer from Aduana, which I refused because I didn’t see the need to push myself any from Dormaa” Caleb Amankwah added.
Caleb Amankwah has just a year left on his contract with Aduana Stars till the end of the suspended season.
SPORTS WORLD GHANA, however, can confirm that both Hearts of Oak and Asante Kotoko are making enquiries about versatile defender to get his signature.
Our outfit can confirm also report that Caleb Amankwah has a deal in place with an European club pending in the summer transfer.
