Kotoko sign defender Sumaila on loan
Rashid Sumaila has joined Asante Kotoko
The 19-year-old joins the Premier League champions on a season-long loan deal-ending weeks of speculation surrounding his transfer.
Sumaila was also targeted by by giants Hearts of Oak after failing to secure a move to Moroccan champions Moghreb Tetouan.
Hearts missed out on signing the highly-rated centre-back because of his exorbitant transfer fee.
"I can confirm to you that Rashid Sumaila has joined Asante Kotoko," Dwarfs chairman Nana Aidoo told MTNFootball.com.
"It is a one year loan agreement of which we believe serves the interest of all parties involved."
The financial details of the agreement are yet to be disclosed.
Sumaila is expected to fill the void created in Kotoko's defence following the sale of Awal Mohammed to South African club Maritzburg United.
