Defender Nuru Sulley is set to complete his second return to Ghanaian giants Hearts of Oak after a spell abroad.

The swashbuckling center back, who is on the verge of signing a two year deal revealed coach Edward Nii Odoom is one of the reasons for his return to the club.

Sulley has been training with the club since returning from abroad where he had spells with Turkish side Alanyaspor, Asian clubs Al Mina and Naft Al Junood.

"I have being training with the team for the past three months, if not for a deal I had outside, I should have started playing in the league for Hearts," he told Oyerepa FM.

"I have given the MD my options which they have also said their part,I wanted to sign for either a year or till the end of the season but they want me for 2years which I have agreed to the 2years, " he added.

He continue: "The only left is the monetary aspect but they should not forget I am coming with a lot of quality, am bringing business to the team, will draw a lot of supporters to the Stadium."

Nuhu has been capped six times by the senior national team of Ghana, and believes his return will help him make a comeback to the Black Stars.

"And another thing is that my target is to break into the national team which I know will attract a bigger offer to the advantage of Hearts of Oak so they should consider all these in our monetary discussions, won't charge them for rent because am staying in my own house, " he said.

"Coach Odoom is one of the reasons I want to play for Hearts of Oak again, am itching to play for him. He has shown me enough respect as well ad as other players, I have developed certain likeness for him."

The Ghana Premier League has been halted due to the outbreak of the coronavirus.
