Richmond Ayi says he joined Hearts of Oak because it is a "big African club". 

The former WAFA shotstopper joined the Rainbow club on a three year deal after ending his stay with the Sogakope based club.

“For me when I left WAFA and Hearts of Oak came calling I could not have said no. It is a big African club and that is why I joined.” Richmond Ayi told

“Hearts of Oak is not only a big Ghanaian club but across Africa this club has some great history. This was enough to make my choice."

The 21-year old believes the club is on the right trajectory after signing several young players in the window in their bid to revive the team that has seen a slump in fortunes in recent years.

“It was really greet feeling when I signed and ever since I can say the team has improved with Kim Grant. We have been working hard at training and the methods of the coach is helping us.

“I am young and it was my dream to play for a big team in Ghana before moving abroad and this was done.”
