Rashid Nortey recruited on a free transfer by Asante Kotoko.

Asante Kotoko has officially completed the acquisition of Rashid Nortey from Medeama on a free transfer. Just few days after the January transfer opens and Asante Kotoko have completed their first signing of 2023.

Rashid Nortey will join the reds on two and half years deal after passing his medicals in the last few hours. The dynamic midfielder will be available for Asante Kotoko’s subsequent matches after his signing is expected to announce later in the day.

The 27-year-old had previously spent six (6) seasons with the Tarkwa based Medeama and was very instrumental in his long stint with the yellow and mauves. After a sensational season in 2021, the talismanic midfielder had a call up to the Black Stars camp and made his debut against Morocco in a friendly.

With persistent injury situations at Asante Kotoko camp this season, Rashid Nortey has an opportunity to play in the first-team on his favoured central attacking midfield role than he would’ve imagined. A skillful and stylish midfielder, he is most effective when roaming fluidly across the forward line and involving himself in the build up play.
