Published on: 30 May 2016

Ex-Hearts of Oak star Bernard Don Bortey will arrive in Sameraboi today to complete a short term deal with Ghanaian second-tier side Samartex FC, GHANAsoccernet.com can exclusively reveal.

The veteran winger is unattached after leaving Swedish four-tier side Ange IF.

The 33-year-old is expected to sign a short term contract with the second-tier side after agreeing personal terms.

GHANAsoccernet.com can exclusively report that the former Aduana Stars man will arrive in the Western Region on Monday to complete formalities.

Bortey is refusing to give up on his career despite his age, insisting he's still got enough footballing years ahead of him.

He was one of the most talented wingers in the Ghana Premier League during his prime while with Hearts of Oak.

He joins former Kotoko striker Alex Asamoah, who has also joined the second-tier on a short term deal.
