Ghana Premier League giants Asante Kotoko and Hearts of Oak have entered into a transfer tussle for the signature of Karela Utd defender Augustine Randolf.

Hearts and Kotoko are representing Ghana in the CAF inter-club competition this season with the Rainbow club playing in the Confederation Cup while Kotoko play in the Champions League.

Randolf starred in 24 league games for the Passion and Pride outfit and is currently a key fixture in the Black Galaxies side that is seeking qualification to the 2023 CHAN competition.

Ex-Kotoko head coach Prosper Narteh Ogum requested the services of the former Bechem United defender he unexpectedly left his role as head coach of the Porcupine Warriors.

With Samuel Appiah failing to impress on his maiden season at the Baba Yara Sports Stadium the club strongly feel the need to look for a solid option at the right-back position.

Meanwhile, Hearts have the experience of Samuel Inkoom to fall on but the Phobians want to introduce competition for the former FC Basel defender who glittered in the 10 games he played for Samuel Boadu’s men. Inkoom, 33, scored twice in 10 games for Hearts. The former African champions feel captain Fatawu Mohammed does not offer strong competition to Inkoom and want Randolf to come.
