Heart of Lions striker Isaac Osae looks set to be handed a contract by Dutch Eredivise side League Heereveen after impressing in Monday’s friendly against FC Groningen, Africanfootball.com has reported.

The 20-year-old led the attack and played the entire duration of the match.

Osae will have to replicate that performance against lower-division side IJsselmeervogels on Saturday in a practice match to confirm his stay at the club.

He is on a two-week trial alongside Chinese central defender Xiao Yu Feng and both gave a good account of themselves.

“They both met our expectations,” Heereveen’s technical director Hans Vonk told the club’s official website.

“They both have play again for us to get a better impression of their capabilities.”

Osae played a key role in Heart of Lions second place finish in last season’s Ghana Premier League.
