Hearts to wrap up trio signing

Published on: 03 January 2013

Accra Hearts of Oak are expected to complete the signing of Sampson Cudjoe, Stephen Tetteh and Joseph Mugri, has learnt. 

The former African champions have been shambolic in the first half of the Ghanaian top-tier league and coach David Duncan believes the trio can help his side's revival.

Striker Joseph Mugri hit top form while on loan with Aduana Stars two seasons ago but has failed to make the mark at Medeama. sources understand the 23-year-old who is now a free agent will ink a three-year-contract on Friday.

Midfielder Sampson Cudjoe has been unused at the Golden City Park and the 22-year-old who is capped once by Ghana has agreed to quit Berekum Chelsea to join the Phobians.

While attacking midfielder  Stephen Tetteh will also join from Tema Youth.

Meanwhile new deals have been handed to diminutive midfielder Obed Ansah and Esme Mends.

    I know u are joking and ii not forget so soon by calling chelsea a smaller club. They kind of own most of the best players in the lge and if hearts wants to get talent from their bench, I dont see a problem with it.

    At HOK almost all the big players in league usually come knocking at the door and we even turn them away. Some even use to come and beg to be sign for free. What's gone wrong? Now we go out there with bags full of money begging bench warmers at other clubs (even division two clubs) and they reject our offers to sign their players. Something must be wrong. Can anyone tell me why?

    After may 9th, the competitiveness between kotoko and hearts drop drastially and fan size at stadiums drop as well as a result the income decrease for both clubs and I think Hearts probably got affected on the income issue. Then pther clubs came in with offering the same prize HOK and kotoko competitiveness in the market for players hit the its lowest peek in my opinion. And has yet be raise, kotoko has been doing ok but hearts is yet to resurrect.

    @Kwame blz i think you have a very solid point there.Post 5/9 Hearts and Kotoko have certainly not been da same and unlike in da past where just their names did da trick, the face of the game has changed significantly even across the world so much so that like in most result oriented phenomena,it now takes deliberate,scientific and pragmatic programs and measures to gain exactly the kinda outcome you desire.The latter day Berekum Chelsea and Medeama in my opinion provides a solid and positive challenge but Hearts and kotoko will always be what they are and the moment they start acting right and professionally,they'll gain their credibility back and i dare say Dr KK Sarpong has definitely got something going on at my Kotoko.I just hope my phobian brothers will appoint just the right CEO for their take off too and hopefully they can then start challenging kotoko again....LoL Cheers guys... NB: Neil Armstrong is a solid candidate no kidding.
