Astana FC not ready to sell Patrick Twumasi before Celtic clash

Astana chief executive Sayan Hamitzhanov has emphasized that Ghana international Patrick Twumasi as well as DR. Congo forward Junior Kabananga are not for sale.

Hamizhanov insists both men will not leave the club before the Champions League group stage final eliminator with Celtic.

“Both Twumasi and Kabananga have had a great season,” Hamitzhanov told his club’s website

“I am not going to tell lies – we have had proposals about both these players and that is entirely understandable because they have been very good for us.

“Some of the best clubs in Europe want them.

“But let’s be clear – they are both under contract until the end of 2018.

“Naturally, if we get an offer that we think is fair, we will talk to the clubs, but that won’t be happening until after our European campaign.

“Twumasi has done well in the Champions League and Kabananga was the top scorer in the Cup of Nations. They are quality players.

“But I want to reassure our fans – they won’t be sold while we are still in European competition.

“Everyone at the club is focused on the Celtic games and I can guarantee we will do everything in our powers to qualify.”

Twumasi who is being courted by Bursaspor has already made it clear that he wants to join the Turkish side.
