Ghanaian giants, Asante Kotoko have resigned former midfielder Justice Blay from Medeama, the player’s father John Blay has disclosed in an interview with Otec FM.
The 28-year-old had a splendid loan stint with the Porcupine Warriors in the 2019/20 season. Blay made up his mind to stay at the club but the two clubs failed to reach a consensus for the successful transfer of the player.
He returned to Medeama but suffered an anterior cruciate ligament injury in a game against Legon Cities last season, which forced him to sit most of the last campaign.
Blay has started personal training and according to his father, Kotoko have secured his services on a permanent deal.
“I can say on record that my son will play for Asante Kotoko next season. This is because I spoke with Medeama owner Moses Armah Parker concerning my son’s future and he told me he has transferred him to Kotoko for the upcoming season,” John Blay told Otec FM.
“I have no problem about that decision so I am looking forward to him starting another adventure in Kumasi. It is never true that Justice Blay has quit football or even has an intention of quitting.
“Blay has started training and he even put up a surprising performance on Monday during a special game he played with friends. I am even shocked about rumours that my son has quit football. Per the kind of performance he put up during the training game, I strongly believe that my son will regain his form and be a part of the Black Stars squad sooner rather than later,” he added.
