Former Kotoko skipper lifts lid on why Hearts of Oak move fell through

Ex Asante Kotoko captain Prince Adu Poku has explained why his proposed move to Hearts of Oak failed to materialise.

The left-footed player was quite phenomenal for the Porcupine Warriors in the 90’s during the administration of Herbert Mensah.

The former B.A United player was poised for a move to Accra Hearts of Oak before joining their arch-rivals Kumasi Asante Kotoko.

Prince narrated how he ended up with the “Fabulous” club when he was expected to join the Accra based side instead.

Speaking to FootballmadeinGh:“Hearts of Oak were interested in me so I came to Accra and we agreed on the transfer fee and personal terms but the payments delayed so I had to go back to Sunyani to wait because I was with B.A United.”

“I was in the stands during the first League match when I was approached by a hotel manager who enquired about my move to Hearts and I told him the deal has not been completed yet.

He then informed me about Kotoko’s interest and sounded out the club about the latest development. Kotoko followed up with two officials Javis Peprah and Kwasi Appiah who came to Sunyani to have further talks with me and that was it ”He said
