Premier league champions Kumasi Asante Kotoko have debunked claims by King Faisal boss Alhaji Karim Grunsah that the porcupine warriors registered Faisal striker Kojo Poku for the African champions league.

Grunsah said he was going to take the GFA to task for allowing Kotoko to register the Black Meteors player for the elite continental competition.

Grunsah issued a directive to the GFA not to permit any club to register a King Faisal player for Africa but he thinks the soccer controlling body allowed Kotoko to flout the directive.

Kotoko’s Accra representative Kwame Amoa Bosompim however says there is no truth in Grunsah’s allegations.

Bosompim says the club held talks with the former Asante Kotoko junior player but declined to sign him on because they could not finish talks with his club King Faisal.

Meanwhile Kotoko will outdoor four new signings in the Coca Cola top four competition which begins Wednesday.

The players, William Tiero, Sam Addo and George Yamoah all of Liberty Professionals have been signed to permanent deals at Kotoko.

The other player who has joined the porcupine family is Elvis Opoku who played for Okwawu united last season.
