Highly-rated defender Caleb Amankwah has revealed the crucial role Nana Agyemang-Badu II played in his transfer to former Ghana Premier League champions Aduana Stars.
According to him, the respected king who owns the club convinced him to sign for the two-time league champions.
The 22-year-old, who is a product of the West African Football Academy (WAFA), joined Aduana in December 2017 amid reports of interest from Asante Kotoko.
"I was at WAFA and I had a deal to travel but the deal could not go through," he said.
"Nana Agyemang-Badu II came to the camp of WAFA and told the management he needs some players to beef up his team to play in Africa and the team released me to join Aduana Stars.
"I spoke to my father and mother about and they gave me their support but I must also confess that Nana Agyemang-Badu II played a crucial role in my transfer to Aduana Stars."
Amankwah explained that he heard nothing official from Kotoko despite reports that they were interested in signing him.
"I heard a lot about Kotoko but no club official approached me," he added.
Amankwah established himself as one of the best defenders in the local league at WAFA as he contributed immensely to their title challenge in 2016.
Before the 2019/20 season was truncated, Amankwah had played a key role in Aduana Stars occupying the first position.
