Hearts of Oak defender to extend deal with club

Fatau Mohammed is among other five players to extend their contract with Hearts of Oak

Hearts of Oak right back Fatau Mohammed says he is ready to renew his contract with the club ahead of next season.

Fatau was one of the outstanding players for the Phobians as they finished 3rd in last season's Ghana Premier League.

Reports circulated in the media that, talks of a contract renewal between the player and Hearts stalled last week but he has now made it clear he is still negotiating with them.

His contract with the club ended last season after the Ghana Premier League and is yet to sign a new deal.

“It is either I travel abroad or it is Hearts of Oak, it is not true I traveled to Saudi Arabia I’m in Tamale doing personal things and negotiating for contract renewal,” he told Nhyira FM.

“Hearts of Oak has offered me an amount and I have asked them to top it because it is Hearts of Oak I will play if I don’t travel abroad. I don’t see why I should play another team locally.”

“At worst I will close my eyes and die for Hearts of Oak but you know the economic conditions in Ghana now so I have asked them to do something about the GHC 25,000," He added.

Hearts of Oak are having a torrid time tying down some of their best players as Vincent Atingah has already departed the club.
