Board chairman for Bofoakwa Tano, Yaw Boateng, has emphasized that his outfit will never sell their striker, Welbeck Takyi to Asante Kotoko.

The young attacker has been linked to the Porcupine Warriors as a replacement for Kwame Opoku, who is on the verge of sealing a move to Algerien side, USM Alger.

The youngster is on the radar of most Premier League clubs due to his form and Yaw Boateng Gyan has stated that the player is not for sale especially to Asante Kotoko who has made an approach for the player.

“We are not going to sale our striker to Asante Kotoko. Kotoko has decided to sell Kwame Poku which they have raked a lot of money and they have approached us with something small for ours," he told Accra Happy FM.

“We have received letters from other teams but we want to stay focus and qualify for the Premier League.

The former Black Stars management member said the team will never trade with Asante Kotoko after they refused to loan Andrew Appau to the club.

“What is worrying that we sold our defender Andrew Appau to Kotoko and requested that they should loan him to us they said no even though the player was not getting playtime."

“They expect us to sell our player to them. We will never do any business with them."

He also proposed that this is the time they should allow a traditional team like Bofoakwa to also qualify for the Ghana Premier League.

“We must also encourage the traditional clubs to also qualify for the league.

"Look what Great Olympics is doing in the league this season," he added.

The youngster is in top form for the Bono club and has scored nine goals in 11 appearances in the ongoing campaign.
