Ghanaian giants Accra Hearts of Oak have terminated the contracts of four top stars in a bid to offload most of their fringe players.
2007 Ghana U-17 winger Prince Attakora-Gyimah, who joined the Phobians two seasons ago, is among players declared surplus to requirement by new coach Duncan.
The Phobians seem to have lost two influential players already as captain Mahatma Otoo and Laryea Kingston are both away abroad in bid to secure contracts abroad.
But Duncan who took over from C K Akunnor in early November, has decided to release midfielders Douglas Nkrumah, Moro Iddrisu and Isaac Ofori.
Ofori, who joined Hearts from Wa All Stars, was one of the best players for the former African champions last season.
Moro Abubakar has also made a handful of appearances this season for the club.
Several second team players have also been reportedly released by the capital club.
With the departures, Duncan is expected to line-up new players for the second window.
