â€œWe have agreed with all the players that we want to sign for next season. Weâ€™re close to 80% in finishing the final terms of the contract,â€ Public and Supporters Relations Manager, Listowell Yesu Bukarson said.
â€œWeâ€™re very much on tract and ensure that we are ahead of time in terms of planning. We are a very professionals club and so we donâ€™t want to wait and be caught pant down.
â€œThe Executive Chairman and his team are on top of issues. We know the players we want to sign and I can say that weâ€™re almost close to securing their services.
Three Mighty Jets players including impressive fleet-footed Ben Eli Agbeko have been linked with the club with New Edubiaseâ€™s Asiedu Atobrah and the leading marksman Emmanuel Baffour believed to be on the radar of Kotoko.
