New Ashgold acquisition, Yaw Annor has pledged to repay the club big time.

The winger joined the Miners on a three-year deal from Bechem United.

According to him, Chairman of the club, Dr Kweku Frimpong played a huge role in joining the club.

"Dr Kwaku Frimpong asked if I can play for Ashanti Gold and I said yes," he told Kumasi based Sikka FM.

"He (Dr Kwaku Frimpong) is a showman and I promise he will never regret signing me," he added.

Annor also revealed how he came close of joining Asante Kotoko.

According to him, the deal collapsed after the club lose to San Pedro in the Caf Confederations Cup.

"I nearly signed for Asante Kotoko but pressure started mounting on the club after losing to San Pedro in Cote d'Ivoire," he said.
