Tunisian coach Jani Tarek has revealed that he is in talks with Accra Hearts of Oak to take over the Ghanaian giants, Ghanasoccernet.com can reveal.
The 40-year-old has been identified by the Phobians as the right man to steer the former African champions in the right direction after the sacking of Kim Grant on Tuesday.
Sources close to Hearts say an agreement has already been reached between the two parties.
Tarek, who recently resigned as coach of Ivorian side San Pedro, says he is ready to join Hearts to help rebuild the Accra-based club.
"I am in communication with Ghanaian side Hearts of Oak to take over the technical leadership of the team," the Tunisian technical brain said on Wednesday.
"Negotiations are still going on, of course I would be happy to work with one of the oldest African clubs."
The France-trained tactician who has all the necessary qualifications says discussions between the top hierarchy of Accra Hearts of Oak are far advanced.
The Tunisian tactician was considered especially after leading San Pedro to eliminate Kumasi Asante in the 2019/20 CAF Confederation cup.
Terek stepped down immediately after beating and eliminating Kotoko.
