Christopher Nettey has revealed he came close to signing for Medeama before landing at his current club Asante Kotoko.

The impressive right-back claims he was approached by Mauve and Yellows head coach Samuel Boadu when he was in camp with the Local Black Stars.

Nettey has proven to be a valuable signing and become Maxwell Konadu's first choice in that position.

''During my time in the local black stars, I was approached by coach Samuel Boadu of Medeama who was willing to sign me immediately. I was dropped before the WAFU tournament in Senegal,'' Nettey told sportsafric

''I had a call one day from Godwin Attram asking me to park my things but I will move to Kumasi to join Asante Kotoko. I was with Great Olympics by then.

''I trained with the team for a week and was featured in the President Cup which we won 2-1 against Accra Hearts of Oak at Baba Yara Sports stadium in Kumasi.''

Nettey had his talent honed at Attram De Visser, an academy owned by ex-Ghana international Godwin Attram.

He spend five years with the lower division side having a short stint with Great Olympics.
