Ochaya Set To Play For Ghana’s Asante Kotoko


medications geneva; font-size: small;”>Asante Kotoko are the current champions of the Ghanaian Glo Premier League after collecting 63 points from the 30 matches played in the season. Their closest rival AshGold finished second with 49 points just two points better that Hearts of Oak who took the third position.

The Ghanaian scouts spotted Ochaya during the Hippos first leg match of the Africa Youth qualifiers in Kampala two weeks ago.

They immediately launched negotiations with the Kampala City Council Club officials.

His superb performance in Tamale Sports Stadium on Saturday spiced up the earlier sealed position to sign the Ugandan youth player.

Ochaya left the Hippos camp (on permission) on Sunday morning and flew to the club’s home in Kumasi City to undergo the medical tests. Uganda Team Manager Faisal Mohammad confirmed the developments.

If the deal is written to the final dot, Ochaya will become the first Ugandan player to feature for a premier league team in Ghana. In 1999, there were attempts by Hearts of Oak to sign SC Villa’s Hakim Magumba but the deal never materialized.

Ochaya flies back to Accra this afternoon to join the rest of the team before embarking on their trip back to Entebbe.

He will thereafter arrange to travel back to Ghana before their league kicks off on October 7. Asante Kotoko officials are expected in Kampala shortly to sign the contract.
