Asante Kotoko has rubbished claims in the media landscape that an agent is entitled to 15 per cent of striker Kwame Opoku’s transfer fee to Algerian giants, USM Algiers.
Reports in the media suggested the Porcupine Warriors will need to pay up certain fees about Opoku’s transfer, according to Algerian intermediary Abdel Hammouche.
According to the report the agent was mandated together with Sheriff Farouk El-Sayeed, an Egyptian counterpart by Kotoko through its Chief Executive Officer Nana Yaw Amponsah on January 4, 2021, and is due 15% of the total transfer fee per the letter of mandate document.
Hammouche is said to have reported Asante Kotoko to the Ghana embassy in Algeria to implore Nana Yaw Amponsah to pay him and his counterpart €45,000 from the deal as agreed in the letter of mandate.
But in a press release, the Ghanaian giants have explained that no agent is entitled to a commission in Opoku’s transfer.
