Chief Executive Officer of Accra Hearts of Oak Frank Noonan says the club will not hesitate to part ways with players who fail to perform.

The American who recently took charge of the Phobians says the club will only keep players who are ready to die for the team.

“As management of Hearts of Oak, I believe we will not have any problems with the players. But what I asked of them is that, first and foremost, they should play for the crest [before personal gains]. If they don’t do that we are going to put them on the transfer-list," Noonan was quoted as saying by Ghanaweb.

"This is because if they don’t want to be here, then we don’t want them here. They must understand that the club comes before anybody," he added.

Noonan took over last month as the club's new CEO and promised to do his best to get the club back to its glory day.

Hearts have lost some key players but manage to get in 11 new players to boost their squad ahead of the 2017/18 season.
