Six players of Accra Hearts of Oak are close to signing new contracts with the club after agreeing on terms with the club.

A source close to the club told Graphic Sports yesterday, that Hearts held talks with the players and they were satisfied with their respective terms and were also prepared to pen their signature to new deals.

“We have had talks with Kwame Kizito, Paul Acquah, Lawrence Tawiah, Robin Gnagne, Fatau Mohammed and Vincent Atinga and I can tell you that plans are far advanced for them to renew their contracts, the source told Graphic Sports yesterday.

“Currently, these are the players whose contracts have expired but the others, including Winful Cobbina and Thomas Abbey are still under contract so we don’t have any problem as far as those players are concerned”, he stated.

“The coach has presented his report and recommended some players that we need to start pursuing; the board will thus meet to deliberate on them before the recruitment process begins,” the source disclosed.
