Struggling Hearts set to lose key players

Published on: 15 July 2011

Giants Hearts of Oak are struggling to hold onto big name players ahead of the new season due to financial constraints.

Five key players of the club are on the verge of leaving the club despite promises of boosting the squad ahead of the new season.

The five-man recruitment committee is finding difficulties in finding funds for the purchase of top players contrary to earlier reports that they were ready to spend 3.5 milllion Ghana Cedis for squad rebuilding.

Captain Karim Alhassan refused to renew his contract with the former African champions.

Defender Osei Bonsu is also reluctant to pen a new deal and midfielder Obed Ansah is chasing a deal abroad.

The club have already lost combative enforcer Uriah Asante who has left the club following the expiration of his one-year loan stint.

Meanwhile Striker Edwin Osei Pele is on the verge on joining New Edubiase after he put in a transfer request.

A US$ 50,000 prize tag on Bright Nsiah has scuppered a proposed deal to bring the Heart of Lions midfielder to the capital club.

Hearts are keen to make a substantial investment in recruiting quality players for next season but financial difficulties is threatening their Premier League surge.

An upcoming floating of shares could bail them out.

    Whatever!They can choose to leave or stay if they want after all players come and players go.No player is bigger than HEARTS OF OAK we can do with or without the so called key players,we still have the likes of Mahatma,Bobbie Ansah,Sefa,Abanga,Quashiga,Abraham Annan,Bashiru,Ayisi,Esme Mends,Apoh,Afriyie,Nzemaba,Andoh,and not forgetting the star of the moment Douglas Nrumah.The above mentioned players will be key to our success next season with the addition of the newly recruited ones.Mgt should do everything possible to bring in new players to replace the want-away ones,the squad has to be strengthened especially upfront which has been our bane for some time now.We know the money is available for recruitment this season despite all the false reports from the press so plz go in for quality players,players that will help us win trophies for seasons to come.

    Master, ur source is not credible. Hearts mgt is rather contemplating whether to put him on transfer or not. Cross check and see that osei bonsu extended his contract for 3yrs and has played only a season. Hearts have enough cash to maintain and recruit old and quality new players.
