Currently, Kotoko has a full squad as all the first-team spots are occupied. There have been departures with Ibrahim Imoro, Mudasiru Salifu, and Fabio Gama leaving, but some new players have also been signed and there are some returning loanees.

There are some areas in the squad where new players can be signed, but to do so, the club needs to make some sales and loan some players. So let us have a look at some of the players who need to be loaned this season.

Charles Owusu
 
Charles Owusu is an excellent left-back, and he has proved his worth in the limited opportunities he got with the first team.
 
He’s too good to continue to book a permanent seat on the bench, so it makes sense for him to go on loan. It has been reported that even the club wants him to go on loan and gain experience. It might be the best step for him at the moment, and I believe that he is just one good season, in which he remains fit, away from becoming a first-team regular.
 
Samuel Appiah 
 
Oh Samuel Appiah, what happened mate? A key member of the Medeama SC side and was regarded as one of the best in his position in the country, Appiah sealed a big move to Kotoko last year and everything has gone wrong ever since.
 
Christopher Nettey and Augustine Agyapong have that right-back position clamped down and it's unlikely that'll change anytime soon.
 
He does still have a lot to offer though, and any club that lands him would instantly better themselves.
 
Dickson Afoakwa
 
The former FC Dynamo Brest winger has found his chances limited since arriving at Kotoko last year. His flair on the pitch matched that off it and his looks makes him social makes him a fans favorite at Kotoko. The decline has been sharp. Beset by the challenge of playing for a big club, the forward's confidence has suffered, and with it, his performances. 
 
But Kotoko clearly still believe in Afoakwa and would want to have him around. Somewhere deep down, a good player still exists. But, he needs confidence. Six months on loan gives him an opportunity at regular playing time and a chance to force himself back into Kotoko's plans in the not-too-distant future. 
 
Abdul Rafiu Yakubu
 
The former Wa Suntaa goalkeeper’s talent has never been in doubt but the youngster is finding it very difficult to become a mainstay in the Kotoko setup. 
 
Competing with established names like Danlad Ibrahim and Kwame Baah and the arrival of new recruits Frederick Asare and Moise Dassise Pouaty, Yakubu should eye for a move from the club, as he’s certainly good enough to play for some clubs in the Ghanaian elite division. 
 
Kotoko reportedly wants to keep him, which would not benefit Abdul Rafiu Yakubu's progression.
