Ghana Premier League outfit Asante Kotoko has fingered Karela United midfielder Emmanuel Keyekeh as an alternative should their plans of bringing back Justice Blay fail.

Blay, had a two year stint with the Porcupine warriors and was a huge success.

Following the expiry of his deal with Kotoko and his eventual return to parent club  Medeama SC, talks have commenced over a possible return; this time on permanent basis.

Footballmadeinghana.com can confirm that, the Asante Kotoko is not ready to pay the $200,000 asking price by Medeama.

A deep throat source also revelal that  in as much as the player favors a return to Kotoko, Medeama prefer selling him to a foreign club prompting the need for Kotoko to look elsewhere.

Our source goes further to say that Head Coach, Maxwell Konadu head coach of Kotoko has identified Karela’s [Emmanuel] Keyekeh as the player to come in should the Blay negotiations break down.

The Royal club will need one more midfielder ahead of their CAF Champions league campaign next season.

Keyekeh, 22, who is on the radar of Hearts of oak is one of the best midfielders in the local scene, and the 24-time Ghana premier league champions believe his profile fits in well to the project they want to embark.
