Hearts of Oak are close to securing the signing of Jonah Attugueye from Legon Cities after reaching with the Cities, according to reports. The Ghana Premier League former champions have already added Cameroonian International Junior Kaaba on a two year deal.
They have also sign Eric Ofori Antwi and defender Zakari Yakubu ahead of the new season. Hearts of Oak announce Kaaba transfer.
“Junior Kaaba finally joins the Phobia family. He puts pen to paper after a successful medical,” the club said.
“He signed a 2-year agreement with Accra Hearts of Oak and we are glad he will join the rest of the team as we prepare for the CAF competition and the GPL.”
The club said of Ofori Antwi: “We are glad to announce the latest family member, Eric Ofori Antwi. He signed a 3-year contract after passing his medicals. he joins the pool of great goalkeepers in the squad. He is finally reuniting with his former coaches.”
On Zakaria, Hearts said: “Our latest defender is from All Blacks and to him, it’s a dream come true. He signed a 4-year deal with the phobia family after passing his medicals. He is Zakari Yakubu.”
Hearts continue to be linked with several players including Attugueye, Razak Kassim from Great Olympics and Konadu Yiadom from WAFA. The 2019-2020 double winners have reached agreement with Legon Cities over Attugueye.
Attugueye has been sensational for his club this season despite Legon Cities going to relegation. His sensationalism earned him a call up to Black Galaxies in CHAN qualifiers against Benin.
The 22-year old started all two games for Ghana having thrashed Benin 4-0 over 2 legged affairs.
Attugueye was understood to have appeared on the radar of rivals Asante Kotoko but may miss out on the attacking midfielder.
