Hearts to issue SOS call to ex-goalie Laud Quartey

Ex-Hearts goalkeeper Laud Quartey could receive an SOS call to re-join the side in a season which has been ravaged by injuries.

The Accra side are without number one shot-stopper Philemon McCarthy, who has been ruled out of action for a few weeks with an injury.

Tetteh Luggard only returned to training this week after recovering from a groin problem as the injury situation mounts.

Quartey, who is currently on trial in Asia, says he would welcome a move back to his boyhood club.

“Right now I don’t know if I am coming to Accra Hearts of Oak. If they tell me that I should come to Hearts of Oak I wouldn’t have any problem with that,” he told Accra-based Power FM.

“I will return to Ghana in April or May ending to come and watch the World Cup. Once my ticket is ready, I will come,” he added.

The 30-year-old was transfer-listed last season after playing his entire professional career at the club.
