Out-of-contract Hearts of Oak striker Kwame Kizito has flatly denied making a u-turn to negotiate an extension with the club.
The lanky forward cut ties with the Phobians on the expiration of his two-year deal and even secured his floating status from the Ghana Football Association.
Reports emerged a couple of days ago that the Glo-Lamp Academy product was seeking talks with the Hearts management but the 21-year-old has described the claims as lies.
“It’s never true I want a comeback to Hearts,” Kizito told Kumasi based Nhyira FM.
“I have never told anyone I want to return. I read on Facebook that I have been begging to be allowed to play for Hearts. I will tell you on authority it’s false, lies.
BK Hacken still on? “Yeah, we have been talking but because they just ended the season in Sweden, that deal is pending. There have also been other interests both home and abroad,” he added.
In a related development, Hearts of Oak have also denied media reports which claimed Board Chairman Togbe Afede had blocked talks to re-sign its contract rebels.
A bemused club PRO, Kwame Opare Addo reacted: “Sometimes I find it strange. Some [media] people, probably in bid to satisfy their employers, create sensational stories. I don’t get it.”
“I can confirm that at a board meeting, it was only Togbe Afede who insisted that once the transfer window has not shut, we should never close the door on these players because we have nurtured them.
“It is never true that the Board Chairman has put an embargo on them,” he said on Atinka TV.
Hearts of Oak have failed to renew the contracts of four key players from last season – Thomas Abbey, Leonard Tawiah, Vincent Atinga and Kizito.
