Hearts have ruled out signing Aduana Stars defender Godfred Saka â€“ following weeks of intense speculation.Â
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.
â€œThere have been so many names being speculated in the local media but Godfred Saka is not one of them, â€œhe said
â€œWe have no interest in signing him from Aduana Stars.
â€œOur focus is on goalkeeper Stephen Adams but not Saka. He is not in our plans at all.â€
Hearts were beaten 2-1 by second-tier Tema Youth during a low profile pre-season friendly on Wednesday.
