Hearts grab six players, more to come



Having axed a dozen of players from their camp due to technical reasons by new head coach David Duncan, Hearts are busy in the transfer market to find better replacements to fix their poor form in the 2012/13 Glo Premier League.

Currently lying just on the drop zone of the Premier League table after 14 games, the Phobians have managed to snap up six new players to augment their squad for the second round of the league which is likely to kick-off late February.

With the second window registration set to close at 1700 GMT on Tuesday, January 8, supersport.com can reveal Hearts have tied down deals with former Nania FC player Abdul Aziz Abankwah as well as Tema Youth’s Stephen Tetteh – all centre-backs.

Both players come in as free players after they were recently declared floating by the Player Status Committee of the Ghana Football Association.

Midfielder Esme Mends returns from a long injury lay-off while one-time playmaker Obed Ansah has re-signed for the club after impressing head coach David Duncan.

The 26-year-old left the Phobians at the end of his three-year deal in 2011. Attempts to secure a deal outside the country proved futile and the player ended up playing for Division One side Tarkwa FC last season.

Former Sekondi XI Wise attacker James Bissue is one of the fresh faces to join the Phobian fold. He returns to the local scene after an unsuccessful spell with Israeli side Hapoel Bee’r Sheva. He joins Heart in a three-year deal.

Former Kotoko young left back Michael Boakye who moved to AshGold during the days of current Hearts coach Duncan at the Obuasi club has also sealed a deal with the Phobians. Boakye recently signed a deal with Real Tamale United after a short loan spell from AshGold.

SuperSport.com understands that despite securing six new additions, Hearts are very active in the market to grab a couple more signings before the close of the registration window next week Tuesday.
