Stephen Adams: I Love Hearts of Oak But Won’t Play There

The 24-year-old says he does not see himself featuring for the Phobians, despite having a soft spot for the Rainbow club.

Aduana Stars goalkeeper Stephen Adams has said he does not want to play for Accra Hearts of Oak, despite admiring the club since infancy.

The Ghana goalkeeper, who recently made the headlines at the CHAN tournament, was responding to earlier reports that he was on the radar of the Phobians.

Former Hearts of Oak coach David Duncan is reported to have expressed interest in the 2010 Ghana Premier League winner.

“I have supported Hearts since I was a kid but I don’t want to play for them,” Adams, who led the home-based Black Stars to a runner-up finish at the CHAN, told Allsports.

“When Duncan was the coach of Hearts, I spoke to some officials of Hearts but I refused to join them.”

He added: “I love to play where I am now. I don’t want to disappoint Aduana Stars because they’ve done a lot for me and I want to serve them for more years.”

Adams has put himself in strong contention for a place in Ghana’s World Cup squad after his heroics at the CHAN tournament.
