Senegalese midfielder Morgaro Gomis is keen to re-establish his partnership with Ghana midfielder Prince Buaben at Hearts of Midlothian.Â
The duo formed a solid partnership at Dundee United four seasons ago underÂ Craig Levein, who is now the current director of football at Hearts, and then Peter Houston.
The 26-year-old Ghanaian is continuing his trial at Riccarton and scored in a friendly against East Fife on Saturday and Gomis is eager to see his club strike a deal with the man who helped him produce some of the best form of his career.
â€œIt was good to play with Prince on Sunday,â€ said Gomis. â€œIâ€™ve known him for quite a while. We started playing together in 2008 and heâ€™s been one of my best friends since then. We just understand each otherâ€™s game. We donâ€™t even really need to speak to each other on the pitch â€“ we just know where the other one is. Itâ€™s very natural and we have a good connection.
â€œThe manager wanted to bring the two of us and I signed first. Iâ€™ve been having a quiet word in his ear but itâ€™s his decision. I donâ€™t know what will happen but I hope we can sign him. Theyâ€™re talking to him just now.
â€œHeâ€™s a very good player, who likes to keep the ball and heâ€™s powerful. He has good experience as well, which would be good for us as we have a young squad.â€
