Asante Kotoko are waiting for the outcome of their petition to FIFA over the transfer of Kwame Bonsu to Esperance.

The Player Status Committee sat on the case today (Wednesday) in Switzerland.

Accra-based Offside Consult, headed by Ashford Tettey Oku, wrote to the world governing body demanding the player's transfer of U$ 150,000 and other reliefs.

A FIFA letter said the meeting will be chaired by the Single Judge of the Player Status Committee who will take a 'formal decision upon the basis of the documents already on file.'

Oku said if the ruling goes in favour of Kotoko, Esperance would also be given 30 days to settle their indebtedness to the Ghana Premier League giants side or face relegation.

Kotoko are sweating over a US$ 240,000 FIFA fine which they must pay to Esperance in respect of the illegal registration of Emmanuel Clottey in 2015 by 10 May, 2020 or face demotion.
