Asante Kotoko target Amed Toure has swerved the Porcupine Warriors as he completes a two year deal to Ivory Coast side Asec Mimosas, Ghanasoccernet.com can exclusively reveal.
The former Asante Kotoko striker who scored 13 goals in 26 appearances for Bechem United in the just-ended season in the Ghana Premier League put pen to paper on Tuesday evening in the Ivory Coast capital, Abidjan.
The striker arrived in Abidjan for talks with giants ASEC Mimosas late last week and has completed the deal this week.
Toure, who hails from Ivory Coast, was identified as a replacement for Burkinabe striker Hervé Oussalé who had his contract terminated.
Toure earlier confirmed had had contact with the capital-based team.
Toure’s completed deal to Asec will be a major blow to Asante Kotoko as they had penciled him down for a move as they target a huge impact in their CAF Confederation Cup campaign next season.
