Asante Kotoko have reportedly opened new contract negotiation talks with Sogne Yacouba and his representatives.
The striker made his first appearance in over a month as Kotoko beat Karela United 1-0 in Ghana Premier League on Friday. He had been frozen out due to contract issues.
The Club's NCC Chairman Christopher Demenya revealed that they are willing to contribute to fund the player's contract and are currently waiting for the club's approval.
Maxwell Konadu stated a few weeks ago that the player will only come back to the squad when they resolve his contract issues, and his return on Friday suggests that the club are on the verge of agreeing on a contract extension with the player and his representatives.
Sogne Yacouba has so far registered three assists for Asante Kotoko this season, more than any player in the squad.
