Swedish topflight side BK Hacken want to pay Accra Hearts of Oak $25,000 training compensation fee in order to sign out-of-contract Kwame Kizito.
The striker recently run down his contract with the Phobians and has opted to leave the Ghanaian giants by holding negotiations with Hacken.
But despite becoming a former club to Kizito, Hearts still have the right to a training compensation as the lanky striker is only 21 years old. Per the Fifa rules, Hearts are entitled to a fee on any transfer of the player until the end of the season of his 23rd birthday.
NM Football Consultancy Limited, who represent Kwame Kizito, in a mail dated November 13, informed Hearts of Oak about BK Hacken’s offer.
The correspondence signed by Neil Murray read:
“On behalf of Swedish club BK Hacken, I would like to offer the club $25,000 transfer fee immediately for former Hearts of Oak player Kwame Kizito.
“We met the club today and they would like to know if this offer is acceptable as training compensation.”
Despite confirming receipt of the correspondence, Hearts of Oak, as of Monday November 20 were yet to respond to BK Hacken’s invitation to an amicable agreement on the training compensation fee over Kizito.
This prompted the player to storm the club’s office to push through his move.
“They [BK Hacken] have told me if Hearts does not accept the training and compensation, the deal cannot go through.
I’m pleading with Hearts to respond to the correspondence from the Swedish club. They sent it some days ago but Hearts have not replied their mail.
My contract with the club has ended,” Kizito told Kumasi-based Nhyira FM.
