Hearts are on RED ALERT after ex-Ghana captain Stephen Appiah revealed he was far from retiring from the game.
Appiah, 33, told Accra-based Joy FM on Tuesday that he was still active and had no plans of hanging up his boot anytime soon.
The news has put Hearts on alert to attempt persuade their former star to re-join his boyhood club.
Appiah has insisted in the past that he will consider ending his career at the capital-based side.
The famous former Black Stars captain played at the 2006 and 2010 FIFA World Cup in Germany and South Africa respectively.
