Hearts of Oak get cash boost for massive transfers

Hearts of Oak have been boosted by news that funds will be made available for big-name signings next season, understands.

The club are believed to be ready to splash out 3.5 billion Ghana cedis to purchase top players.

The Premier League crown has eluded the 2000 African champions for the past three years, with the blame largely laid on lack of capital injection and low-player motivation as the chief reasons.

The club’s six-man recruitment committee says substantial investment will be made available for squad re-building.

“The committee has been working on the quiet and we’ve identified the players we think can help our course next season and will make the names public when we finalise the deals,” board member Alhaji Braimah Suleimana said.

“We want our fans to be rest assured the right players with the love and commitment for the club will be looked at for next season and beyond.”
