Medeama SC have pulled out of a deal to sign striker Songne Yacouba after the player made a last minute change of mind, according to reports.
The Mauve and Yellows were keen on making the striker their marquee signing in this open transfer window to augment their attack, however, the Burkina Faso international scuppered the deal at the last hour after holding the club to ransom.
According to our checks, the Tarkwa based club had already structure a two year deal with Yacouba's representatives and all left was the player's signature.
At the meeting to sign the attacker, Medeama had to walk out of the deal after the 29-year demanded $100,000 a year contract, before inking a deal an amount the Ghana Premier League club deemed ridiculous.
Songne Yacouba is a free agent after Asante Kotoko refused to extend his contract as they also felt his financial demands were outrageous. its is said Yacouba demanded $150,000-a-year salary to stay at the club.

It could be recalled that Asante Kotoko National Circles Council (NCC) Chairman, Christopher Damenya months ago said that some two million supporters of the club have agreed to contribute in order to pay for the striker to stay after Executive Board chairman Kwame Kyei had claimed that the Burkina Faso international is demanding $150,000 before signing a new contract.
However, Nana Coker has rubbished the claims, stating never for once did the NCC raised the top topic about Yacouba's transfer saga in their meetings.
