Medeama president Moses Armah confident Justice Blay will stay at club

President of Ghana Premier League side Moses Armah believes Justice Blay will be playing for the Mauve and Yellows next season.

For weeks now, Asante Kotoko have been linked with Blay with the midfielder reported to have gone AWOL in order to force a move.

Blay spent last season on loan at Asante Kotoko and the Porcupine Warriors have expressed concrete interest alongside other clubs. Armah confirmed to Joy News there was communication with Kotoko regarding the transfer.

“We were negotiating on his transfer back to Kotoko. But they couldn’t match the offer we demanded. We are going to discuss their last offer but I don’t think it is very good for us to release him on that offer. If we leave him, we have to get another replacement.”

On Tuesday, Goldfields signed a $300,000 sponsorship deal with Medeama SC. As a result, Armah believes his club do not need to sell Blay for more funds.

“Look at the [money] Goldfields have given us today. Why should we rush? We want to be part of the great clubs in Africa. So for now, Blay is staying. He is in Tarkwah now and he is going to be happier here than when he goes to Kotoko.”

Medeama will kick off their Ghana Premier League campaign at home to Accra Great Olympics at the Akoon Park.
