Saddick Adams and Eric Donkor set to swap Kumasi for Obuasi?

It was an International day to celebrate Mothers worldwide just yesterday. How soon the buzz has ceased. Have mothers stopped living all of a sudden?  I guess not and hopefully that love exhibited yesterday will be carried on into subsequent days to make motherhood and parenthood at large more enticing.

It's a new day here and Asante Kotoko's Head Coach, Paa Kwasi Fabin's decision to release some big names as the transfer window draws to end has born some fruits. This decision, can it haunt the club in the near future? Neighbors, Ashantigold, meanwhile might be making the most of it. Who wouldn't. 

Edwin Tuffour Frimpong, Eric Donkor and Sarfo Gyamfi saw their contracts terminated by the club with Saddick Adams, Seth Opare and Yakubu Mohammed being transfer listed. Reports also have it that, attacker Mawuli Osei has also been released in a bid to create room for new signings. Kotoko might be right to let go but that's just too much quality in the pack.

Ashantigold SC meanwhile has seen a change of ownership and an accompanying breeze of achievement under club legend and now head coach, Charles Akonnor. The former Black Stars and Wolfsburg captain has raised a side that now leads the league and in search of their fifth league trophy after winning it last in 2015.

With Medeama SC and Dreams FC breathing down their neck and a possible resurgence of Aduana Stars, the club has seen the need to acquire some experienced legs in their quest for glory. Who are they getting?  You need not guess.

Eric Donkor has said goodbye 
Saddick Adams managed 10 goals in 13 games for the Kumasi based club after joining them in the second round of the season. His famous hat-trick against fierce rivals Hearts of Oak landed the porcupines the FA Cup trophy last term. Saddick has played just a game in the league season having  been plagued with injuries in the off season.

Obuasi will offer him a fresh start and it's an old home. In the yellow and black colors he emerged in 2007 and got listed in World Soccer Magazine with De gea,  Kroos, Aguero, Benzema, Gio dos Santos and others as the 50 most exciting talents in the world.

Well, you can't teach an old dog new tricks so hopefully Akonnor and his team get the best out of him. Steve Polack's sack might have necessitated this departure since he was influential in getting the former Athletico Madrid player to Kotoko. 

Former Vice Captain of Asante Kotoko, Eric Donkor, looks certain to be joining the miners too. Donkor won 2 FA Cups, 3 league trophies and 3 Super Cups in his 7 year stint at the club. The left footed player has to battle Roland Amuzu who has been on top form this season. Maybe he can add up to his silverware drawer but he needs to up his game to make the grade at the Adansi side.

He has played a bit part in the 12 games this season owing to injuries and match fitness. The arrival of Isaac Amponsah and Daniel Darkwah meant there was less room for him to stay.

In these two players Ashantigold SC are assurred of strength in-depth in player quality and  the "been-to" attitude. They will complement and to an extent make the team complete in the divisions they will serve.

Chief Executive Officer, Mr. Frederick Acheampong has acknowledged the quality the two players present and will append his signature to any swoop once the technical team gives the green light.
