Hearts of Oak confirm Ernest Sowah capture

Published on: 16 May 2018

Communications Director of Hearts of Oak Kwame Opare Addo has confirmed the signing of goalkeeper Ernest Sowah.

The 30-year-old became a free agent after mutually terminating his contract with Asante Kotoko fortnight ago after he was deemed surplus to requirement by the Porcupine Warriors.

The Phobians ventured into the transfer market after they were hit with massive goalkeeping problems – where they conceded 13 goals in 11 games despite using their then three registered first team goalkeeper in just 11 games into the season.

"Five minutes ago Ernest Sowah came to Hearts' Secretariat to sign his contract. So as I speak, he has officially joined Hearts of Oak," Opare Addo told Happy FM.

He is expected to fill in the void left by Theophilus Jackson, who was part of the four players the club released for non-performance – the rest are Joshua Otoo, Cosmos Dauda and Evans Quao.
