Enyimba wrote to the Ghana Premier League to enquire about the availability of the highly rated goalkeeper over a possible transfer
In an interview with Edmund Osafo Addo on SilverSports, Ofori Antwi revealed that deal has not panned out but his management are close to reaching an agreement in their negotiation with the Nigerian side.
''The deal is not through yet but I must say management are still in talks with Enyimba for a successful move...so I am just relaxing and waiting patiently for them''
''This is a career path and an opportunity like this should not be left off the hook but I have a contract with Medeama SC so they are in the right position to decide''
The former Ghana U20 shot stopper indicated that he is fit and keeping up with training against the odds of COVID - 19.
''I am fit and I have been engaging myself with regular indoor training with some colleagues at home to shape up so that I can blend and make up with any team whenever there is a call up to task''
Alawa has two more years left on his contract with the Yellow and Mauves outfit and has been a key figure in the Medeama setup since joining in January 2017 after leaving Asante Kotoko SC.
The 25-year-old was the goalkeeper for Ghana at the 2019 WAFU Cup of Nations in Senegal where the Black Stars B finished as runners-up.
Ofori-Antwi will be teammates with compatriots Daniel Darkwah, Emmanuel Ampiah and Farouk Mohammed if he joins the Aba giants.
Medeama have therefore lined up a possible replacement for the goalie as they are close to signing former AshantiGold goalie Frank Boateng.
However,goalkeeper Owusu Dacosta has signed a new contract with Medeama SC.
The youngster who has been with the Mauve and Yellows since 2017 and a back-up for Eric Ofori Antwi now gets his chance to stake a claim for regular role.
