Midfielder Mustapha Essuman has finally finalized his transfer to Accra Hearts of Oak.

The talented 'middle man' inked his signature to a deal on Thursday morning that will see him don the 'Rainbow' Jersey through 2018.

The midfielder joins Hearts of Oak after previous stints with PL side Liberty Professionals and newly promoted tier one side Ebusua Dwarfs.

He featured for the Phobians in their G6 tournament match against Aduana Stars.

In a related development, experienced Sekondi Hasaacas shot stopper, Samuel Akurugu, popularly known to Hasmal faithful’s as 'Barthez' in a surprising move also inked a 3year deal with Hearts of Oak.

Top brass within the Phobian hierarchy won the goalie over after successful talks with Hasaacas management at the just ended G6 tournament that came off at the Essipong Stadium in the Western Region.

His inclusion into the Phobians camp will offer a competitive challenge to aging Hearts goalie Soulama Abdoulaye, who also double-dips as the Burkinabe national goalie.

Meanwhile multiple media reports indicate that the club's management is working on parting ways with four new players following the team’s uninspiring outing at the just ended GHALCA G6 tournament.

According to the reports, the new signing quartet of Ibrahim Issaka, Franklyn Osei, Ibrahim Musa and Jacob Quartey are on the verge of being cut following their recent uneventful performances and inability to impress the technical staff.

This is not the first time the axe is being unleashed in the Phobian camp as the team continues to iron out the wrinkles this preseason.

It will be recalled that the Accra based club let go of 4 players recently - Prince Boadu, Atiso Doe, Patrick Razak and John Abadioo following an lackluster preseason adventure in Libya that saw them concede 5 goals within 180 minutes, without putting up any.
