Former Asante Kotoko coach Abdul Razak will only sign to coach Real Tamale United after the on-going Malian league season ends later this month.
Though Razak has agreed in principle to coach RTU for the 2006/2007 season, he is expected to conclude his tenure in charge of Stade Malian before returning to Ghana.
Currently, Razak's side is on the brink of securing a fourth league title in five seasons.
With six games to the end of the season, Stade have an eight-point lead on the league charts and are sure bets for a successful defence of their title.
When the 'Golden Boy' takes charge at RTU, he is expected to turn the Tamale based club into genuine title contenders.
Abdul Razak led Kotoko to a first ever league title in a decade in 2004, but he was unceremoniously bundled out of office after a change in management.
