Ghana’s FA Cup champions Kumasi Asante Kotoko have announced the sale of forward Saddick Adams to rivals Ashanti Gold Sporting Club. 

The former Black Starlets star endured a difficult one year spell with Kotoko, which was blighted with injuries and a lack of goals.

Kotoko made the news public on their official Twitter account on Saturday thanking the player for his time at the club.

The 28-year old is remembered by football fans in Tamale when his first half hat-trick famously helped Kotoko win last season’s MTN FA Cup at the Aliu Mahama Sports Stadium, securing a 3-1 victory for Kotoko against bitter rivals Hearts of Oak.

Adams becomes the second high profile player to join AshGold from Kotoko this transfer window, after former Kotoko vice captain Eric Donkor made the move earlier this month.
