Kumasi Asante Kotoko will have to cough out $50, 000 to land the Services midfielder Justice Blay from Medeama, as negotiations begin.

Asante Kotoko SC have renewed their interest in Blay in the second window transfer and have approached Medeama SC with their latest offer for the player.

Blay played for the Kumasi-based outfit and excelled in a short loan stint with them  last season.

Reports indicate the two teams are back on the discussion table with Kotoko this week submitting a bid to convince  Medeama to release the midfielder.

However, Medeama, according to reports from Kumasi-based Pure FM have responded to the Porcupine’s latest bid with a $50,000 asking price – but that seemingly is not putting Asante Kotoko off.

Negotiations are ongoing and should they reach an agreement, Kotoko are expected to announce the signing of Blay in the coming days.

The Black Stars midfielder currently has 8 months left on his contract and the Tarkwa-based side are not willing to let their star man go for a discounted price.

Blay, 28, has been outstanding for the Mauve and Yellow this season, netting three goals in 14 matches which has earned him a call up into the Black Stars team for the 2021 AFCON qualifiers against South Africa and Sao Tome and Principe.
