Kumasi Asante Kotoko midfielder, Kwame Bonsu, has landed in Tunis to complete a transfer to African champions Esperance Sportive de Tunis, Citi Sports can confirm.
Bonsu, 24, left Ghana together with his representatives on Tuesday evening and has arrived in the North African country ahead of finalizing the move.
The deal is expected to be completed by the close of the week.
Bonsu has already agreed personal terms with the club, which has identified him as a suitable replacement for Cameroonian midfielder Franck Kom, who recently left Espérance for Qatari side Al-Rayyan SC.
The former Gefle midfielder joined Kotoko in June 2018 and was a key member of the squad that reached the CAF Confederation Cup group stages.
He earned a call up to the national team for Ghana’s last 2019 Afcon qualifier against Kenya and played featured briefly in a friendly against Mauritania.
