Ghana Premier League side, Asante Kotoko have been cautioned to offer Matthew Anim Cudjoe a good contract whose one-year loan deal expired at the end of the season.

The 17-year-old has until the truncation of the 2019/20 Ghana Premier League was sensational for the Porcupine Warriors.

Reports in the local media suggest that Cudjoe is being tracked by other top European clubs due to his exploits.

However, Samuel Anim Addo, who is the manager of the winger says the youngster is open to fresh negotiation for contract extension with the Porcupine Warriors as soon as they were ready.

''We have not resumed negotiations yet but Coach Maxwell Konadu occasionally calls to discuss the boy with me,'' Anim Addo, who is also an Executive Council member of the Ghana Football Association (GFA), told Graphic Sports.

Despite interest in the young winger by some European clubs, Mr Anim Addo insisted that the boy needed to attain the age of 18 years before he could sign any contract abroad.

He, therefore, preferred Kotoko as the first option should the player continue his career development on the local scene.

According to Anim Addo, should negotiation begin anytime soon, his main priority would be about how the club would develop the player to become a future star, including getting enough playing time to enhance his potential.

''If they will offer him a good contract we are ready to accept it.

"When I say a good contract I am referring to an offer which will help develop the player and also get him enough playing time'', he stressed.

He said he was ready to meet the management of the club as and when they were ready to open talks for a review of the deal.

He is well remembered for his immense contribution to Kotoko's 1-0 win over arch-rivals, Accra Hearts Oak, in their first-round league game at the Accra Sports Stadium.

Cudjoe recently went on trials at Bayern Munich.
