LISTEN JUL 22, 2020

Owner of Medeama FC, Moses Armah Parker has rubbished reports claiming they have priced Justice Blay for a fee of $200,000.

The magnificent midfielder who spent last season at Asante Kotoko on loan has been tipped to return to the club ahead of their Caf Champions League campaign next season after amazing campaign.

And according to media reports, Medeama had decided to sell Blay but would not let him go for any amount less than $200,000.

But according to Mr Parker, the club is ready to sell the player to any club, foreign and local, but no price tag has been placed on him.

"Medeama have not put any price tag on Blay. I don't know where that information is coming from because as I speak to you, no club has shown interest in the player, making it quite strange to put a price tag on him for now," the former Black Stars management committee member told Graphic Sports.

“Though the club has plans of selling him to any club, foreign or local, the price will be communicated to any serious club that approaches us. As I speak, no club, including Kotoko, has shown interest.

“The foreign clubs are not showing up because of the imposition of travel restrictions and the sealing of borders in the country and other countries as a result of the coronavirus which has affected player transfers. Blay is a promising player and I believe clubs will come on board for his services soon,” he noted.

The talented midfeidler returned to Medeama last month after the 2019/20 season was called off due to coronavirus.

The 28-year-old midfielder emerged as Kotoko’s best player in the league, bagging five man-of-the-match awards, with one coming against Hearts of Oak whom he helped Kotoko to beat 2-1 at the Accra Stadium.

Blay also played an integral part in the Black Stars B team that participated in the 2019 WAFU Cup tournament in Senegal but were runners-up to tournament host, Senegal, after losing the final match through a penalty shootout after a 1-1 draw in full time.
