Striker Gilbert Fiamenyo issues come and get me plea to Hearts
By Patrick Akoto
Hearts are in pole position to sign Gilbert Fiamenyo after the Heart of Lions striker snubbed an approach from some unnamed top flight sides.
The 20-year-old has not hidden his desire to play for the capital-based club.
Both clubs have failed to reach an agreement on the player’s evaluation.
While Lions want a reported 80,000 Ghana Cedis before allowing one of their prized assets to go, Hearts are ready to part away with only 30,000 Ghana cedis – situation which has stalled his proposed move to the club.
Fiamenyo is growing frustrated at the turn of events and want his future to be sorted out by both parties quickly.
“I want to join Hearts because they are a big club and also I’ve also played there before,” Fiamenyo said
“So whatever the problem between Hearts and Lions, they should sort it out for me to make the move as the delay won’t serve anyone’s purpose.
“Hearts are undoubtedly a big club where I can be guaranteed of a bigger platform to get called up into the national team.
“I think I am the Black Stars striker for the future and playing at a club like Hearts is the right step towards that goal.
“I am therefore appealing to both parties to arrive at consensus soon in order for me to get the needed concentration and move on in my career.”
Fiamenyo has been almost ever-present for Lions over the past few years and with a left on his contract, he is anxious to play for the 2000 African Champions League
