Kotoko have rejected SC Sfaxien request for out-of-court settlement of the transfer fee for midfielder Stephen Nyarko.
The Porcupine Warriors released the midfielder to join the Tunisian Club at the end of the 2015/16 season.
Nyarko who played for Kotoko for a season after joining from WA All Stars was poached by the North African Club in an undisclosed fee.
CS Sfaxien having made part payment have since refused to oblige by the agreement of settling the remaining fee.
Kotoko have reported the issue to the Court of Arbitration for Sports (CAS) who are expected to take an immediate action.
The Tunisian outfit have made advances to Kotoko requesting the Reds to take the issue out of the range of CAS who could impose hefty sanction on them for breach of contract.
