Hearts of Oak attacker Thomas Abbey is reportedly on the verge of walking out of the Rainbow club after emerging in South Africa on trials.
The highly-rated left winger, who captained the Phobians this past season,, could leave for free as his contract is running out.
Talks over a contract renewal have hit the rocks in recent weeks as the club has failed to meet the 24-year-old’s demands.
At the start of November, Abbey said in an interview: “I can’t promise Hearts of Oak fans of my stay because I’m still in negotiations with management.
“If they are able to meet my demands, I will renew my contract but if they fail, I think Hearts fans will not see me in the rainbow colors next season.”
The former Windy Professionals trainee, who has also been courted by league champions Aduana Stars and rivals Asante Kotoko, left Accra for South Africa a couple of days ago.
Reports have emerged that the Hearts of Oak top scorer in the 2016/17 Ghana Premier League is having trials at Absa Premiership giants Ajax Cape Town with the view of landing a deal.
Thomas Abbey scored thirteen goals for Hearts in the league. He was one of the emerging stars at the Wafu Cup of Nations recently won by Ghana despite being played out of position, left-back.
