Ghana's No. 1

Hearts of Oak complete payment of Gladson Awako transfer fee as Olympics withdraw court case

Published on: 07 December 2021

Great Olympics have withdrawn their court case against Hearts of Oak after the Ghanaian champions finally completed the payment transfer fee involving midfielder Gladson Awako.

Great Olympics transferred their captain Awako to Hearts of Oak for a fee of 100,000 Ghana cedis. However, there was an agreement between both clubs that the money would be paid in two instalments.

The first instalment was paid on 13th September and the second instalment was set to be paid on October 2.

Hearts of Oak failed to meet the deadline to finish paying the amount and that led to Olympics making public the agreement in an attempt to force the Phobians to settle their debt.

That yielded no positive result and Olympics reportedly dragged Hearts of Oak to the Ghana Football Association (GFA) Status Committee while ordering Awako to return to the club.

The capital-based club withdrew the case from GFA after no significant progress was made and proceeded to the High Court.

Hearts of Oak was served, but have paid the remaining amount to bring finality to the issue as confirmed by Olympics Chief Executive Officer Oluboi Commodore.

“Hearts of Oak have done the needful in relation to the Gladson Awako case so the case has been withdrawn from the court," Oluboi told Fox FM.

"Hearts of Oak have paid the arrears of GHC50,000 being the final payment of the Awako transfer fee so there’s no case now

He added, "We wanted Hearts of Oak to accord us respect, the issue was not only about the money they had to pay."

Awako on the other had returned to training recently after going AWOL for a month due to allegations of spiritual attacks.

He has been training fine, hoping to be included in Hearts of Oak matchday squad for the first time and handed his debut.
