Asante Kotoko have mutually agreed to part ways with Ivorian midfielder Mohammed Sylla, the club has confirmed.
Sylla, joined the Porcupine Warriors on a three-year deal in 2017 and has since failed to live up to expectation.
“We have mutually terminated the contract between us and Ivorian midfielder Sylla Vie Mohammed…more soon,” the club posted on Twitter.
The midfielder was declared surplus to requirement by the club’s technical handlers headed by coach Charles Kwalan Akunnor.

Mohammed made only two appearances during the first round of the 2018 Ghana Premier League season before it was halted following the airing of the investigative piece by ace journalist Anas Aaremeyaw Anas on corruption in Ghana football.
