Hearts of Oak ‘agree personal terms’ with this budding defender

Oppong Afrane has been deemed as a good addition to the Hearts of Oak defensive set-up after losing Konadu Yiadom, Caleb Amankwah and Robert Addo Sowah in the ongoing transfer window.

Getsportsgh.com understands Hearts of Oak initially submitted a bid of Gh¢150,000 for the defender but it was rejected by King Faisal as the club wanted Gh¢350,000.

The Phobians submitted an improved bid of Gh¢165,000 but it was also rejected by King Faisal with the club now demanding Gh¢200,000.

We understand officials of Hearts of Oak and King Faisal Football Club will meet on Tuesday, August 29 for the final round of talks with a deal likely to be finalized.

Oppong Afrane has been a transfer target for Hearts of Oak since the opening of the transfer window following his spectacular performance for King Faisal FC last season despite the team’s failure to maintain its premier league status.

He was an important member of the Ghana U-23 side that participated in the U-23 AFCON in Morocco.

Should the deal materialized, David Oppong Afrane will join the Hearts of Oak defense that already boast of Kelvin Osei Asibey, Kofi Agbesimah and host of other talented center-backs.
