Twente in talks for Ghana's Amoah

Published on: 31 January 2012

Ghanaian striker Matthew Amoah could return to Holland if FC Twente are able to reach a deal for his signature by midnight.

Twente have opened talks with Turkish side Mersin Idman Yurdu to sign the Ghanaian.

The Dutch club are in the market to boost their attacking options before the transfer window shuts later tonight.

Amoah joined Mersin Idman Yurdu from NAC Breda at the start of the season but he has struggled to make an impact in the Turkish top-flight.

Mersin have also struggled to pay his transfer fee to NAC Breda and could sell Amoah to get some cash to pay-off the debt to the Dutch club.

The only sticking point is the transfer amount demanded by Mersin who want 5million Euros as he has a contract with the club until June 2013.

Since moving from NAC to Mersin Idman Yurdu, Amoah has played only five league matches and has not scored.

    This deal will not go through, just read that it's not allowed for a footballer to have played for 3 clubs in a season. Since Amoah has played for NAC, the Turkish club and Twente (if the deal went through) he's probably not going anywhere..

    Poor him I wonder why he chose to leave the dutch eredivise again, after he suffered the same fate after the 2006 world cup when he moved to Dortmund in the bundesliga, & I have still not heard him announcing his retirement from the Black Stars lol.
