It is in the bad condition of the player as his injury can not be found by any doctor and has stick to herbal treatment at home. His transfer was confirmed by the club Wednesday, the same day they started preparations for the season, which is expected to start in November.

He made 11 appearances for Karela and was adjudged man of the match in three games. Keyekeh joined Karela United from UniStar Soccer Academy.

Kotoko have lost midfielders Emmanuel Keyekeh and Mudasiru Salifu to injuries. But Latif Anabila, Kwame Adom Frimpong, Muniru Sulley and Godfred Asiamah have slotted in calmly for them. Last season, Prince Opoku Agyemang scored to hand Medeama SC a 1-0 win against Asante Kotoko at the Akoon park.
