John Painstil to join KRC Genk
The Belgium top-flight side are in pole position of landing the Ghana youth attacker, Kickgh.com can exclusively reveal.
Ghana and Ferencváros TC forward Joseph Painstil has emerged as a top winter transfer target for KRC Genk.
According to Kickgh.com sources, The Luminus Arena outfit are currently holding talks with Ghanaian side Tema Youth over the possible acquisition of the former Ghana U20 attacker.
The 19-year-old joined Hungarian top-flight side Ferencváros TC on a season-long loan deal with an option to buy should he excel during the loan spell.
It is however unknown where the Hungarian outfit will let go of their prized asset who has been a cult hero since joining them last August.
He is currently in Ghana and has not returned to the Green and White lads after their mid-season break per our outfit sources.
He was part of the Ghana U20 team that failed to qualify to the 2017 Africa Youth Championship and the 2017 FIFA U20 World Cup.
Paintsil has had a tremendous debut season with Ferencváros TC where he has managed to register six goals in his 12 appearances.
