Kotoko hotshot Songne Yacouba arrives in Sudan to complete Al Hilal transfer
Songne Yacouba has arrived in Sudan to complete a move to Al Hilal Oumbduman.
Al Hilal have been a big admirer of the Kotoko forward who has been in the transfer news for sometime now.
The Sudanese Champions have been in talks with Kotoko for the player since the two sides met in the CAF Confederation Cup.
Kotoko is reported to have initially turned down an offer believed to be in the region of $100,000 from Al Hilal.
But it appears the blues renewed their push for the 27-year-old by increasing the amount.
Yacouba who had tendered in a transfer request to Kotoko is now expected to undergo medicals a Hilal before signing a deal.
The news could be a blow for South African Club Orlando Pirates who were also chasing the Burkinabe attacker.
