The Chief Executive Officer (CEO), of King Solomon, Alhaji Nasiru Mohammed aka Alhaji Nash has rubbished report of Samudeen Ibrahim, a player with Hearts of Oak moving to Petro Athletico and Rja Cassablanca.

Speaking in an interview with Rainbow Sports, he said, Samudeen is still in Ghana and has not gone to Morocco as reported.

The midfielder was reported to be closing in on a move to the Casablanca-based giants after pictures of him standing with a handy bag at the Kotoko International Airport emerged in the media earlier this week.

However, the midfielder's manager Alhaji Nasiru Mohammed has clarified the situation by claiming that his was then travelling to his hometown, Zabzugu, in the northern part of the country.

He disclosed that an interview his player had with Graphic Sports was misreported.

"It is never true Samudeen has left the country, Samudeen is in Ghana currently as I speak, he is in Ghana. There are some individuals behind this negative story to court negative reactions from Hearts of Oak. They want Hearst of Oak to react in a bad manner.’’

Accra Hearts of Oak suspended Samudeen indefinitely for what the club described as “multiple violations of player contract".

Asked what the picture of Samudeen at the airport meant, Alhaji Nasiru Mohammed, denied it and explained that:

"The picture is of Samudeen when we went to see off his friend at the airport", Nasiru claimed."

He (Samudeen) even cautioned his friend not to release the picture on social media, but he jokingly did and that is what has caused the problem", he explained.

He cautioned individuals spreading the rumours to desist from doing so in order to prevent his player from being given a bad name.
