Former Asante Kotoko striker, Abdul Fatawu Safiu, is set to make a sensational return to the club, sparking anticipation among fans ahead of the January transfer window.
The 29-year-old, currently unattached after parting ways with Iraqi side Al-Sinaa SC in June 2023, is reportedly in advanced talks with Kotoko’s leadership about rejoining the Porcupines.
Sources indicate that Safiu, who is enjoying holidays in Maldives, plans to return to Ghana next week for face-to-face discussions with the Kotoko Interim Management Committee (IMC). The potential reunion with Kotoko, where Safiu previously made a significant impact, has stirred excitement among Kotoko supporters.
During his earlier stint with Kotoko, Safiu showcased his goal-scoring prowess, contributing three goals and two assists in the 2018/2019 CAF Confederation Cup.
His remarkable 11-goal tally played a crucial role in securing Kotoko’s victory in the Special Competition Tier 1, earning them a spot in the 2019/2020 CAF Champions League.
Safiu’s stellar performances with the Porcupine Warriors also earned him a place in Ghana’s provisional squad for the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations.
