Medeama have announced midfielder Malik Akowuah has finally joined Hearts of Oak on a permanent basis to close the chapter on the long-winding transfer battle, GHANAsoccernet.com can confirm.
The 27-year-old will finally get his career back on the road after the two clubs agreed a deal on Tuesday.
The Yellow and Mauves have announced the departure of the 27-year-old and have given their seal of approval for him to join the capital-based side.
“Medeama would like to announce midfielder Malik Akowuah today joined Hearts of Oak in a permanent transfer,” Chief Executive James Essilfie said in a statement on Monday.
“The two clubs have reached an agreement to pave way for the midfielder to continue his career at Hearts.
“Akowuah joined the Yellow and Mauves from Ashantigold in 2012 and contributed significantly to the club’s surge in the Ghanaian top-flight.
“He won two FA Cup titles and helped the side tremendously in reaching the group stage of the CAF Confederation Cup.
“We thank Akowuah for his efforts and wish him the very best of luck for the future.”
Akowuah’s moved to Hearts was rocked with controversy after Medeama accused the club of tapping their star midfield general.
The Tarkwa-based side threatened to recall the midfielder and dared Hearts to field him.
But the two clubs reached an agreement after Monday’s marathon meeting to bring a closure to the long winding transfer battle.
Akowuah is now eligible to feature for the Phobians in the G6 semi-final clash against Asante Kotoko on Sunday.
He held his first training session with Hearts on Tuesday.
