Former Ghana defender, John Paintsil is now the owner of Kwesi Nyantakyi’s, Wa All Stars.
Following the airing of the ‘Number 12’ video Anas Aremeyaw Anas, FIFA after several months of internal investigations slapped Mr Nyantakyi with a lifetime ban and with a heavy fine.
WA All Stars made their debut in the nation’s topflight in 2009 and have since maintained a spot in the league and became the first club from the Northern part of the country to be crowned champions of the top flight in 2016.
“For now what I can say is the club is on the verge of been sold,” a source told Footballghana.com.
“Negotiations between both parties have been in existence for some time now.
“We will make official announcement as a club if taking over happens”, he added.
However, the former Fulham and West Ham defender is expected to be confirmed as the new owner of the club in the new few days.
Wa All Stars are expected to participate in the Normalization Committee special committee that is yet to be launched next month.
