Hearts Put 4 Senior On Transfer List

Hbt2Hearts’ coach Herbert Addo has wielded the axe at Hearts of Oak with four senior players set to leave the club latest next week.

Midfield duo Samson Cudjoe and Stephen Tetteh, defender Emmanuel Ansong as well as striker Ezekiel Tetteh have been told to look elsewhere after failing to make the grade at the club.

New coach Addo is planning a massive clear-out and will listen to offers for a clutch of high-profile players as he tries to trim his squad ahead of the start of the new season.

The former Inter Allies coach has the backing of the club’s board to undertake the exercise with many more senior players expected to be axed.

Addo has been told to splash the cash and bring in quality replacements in their bid to wrestle the Premier League crown from rivals Asante Kotoko.

He has warned his under-achieving stars that they are playing for their Hearts futures.

Meanwhile, Hearts have ruled out signing Aduana Stars defender Godfred Saka – following weeks of intense speculation.

The capital-based side have been linked with the experienced right-back for close to three seasons but intensified their pursuit of the impressive player this term.

Saka was believed to be nearing a move to Accra with the deal reported to be firming up by the close of the week.

But Hearts spokesman Muheed Saed has dismissed speculations surrounding the player.

“There have been so many names being speculated in the local media but Godfred Saka is not one of them, “he said

“We have no interest in signing him from Aduana Stars.

“Our focus is on goalkeeper Stephen Adams but not Saka. He is not in our plans at all.”

Hearts were beaten 2-1 by second-tier Tema Youth during a low profile pre-season friendly last Wednesday.
