Hearts of Oak in talks to takeover $10m training facility


Hearts of oak are in advanced talks with West African Football Academy to take over their former training facility in Gomoa .

The deal which could see the Phobians using the facilities in Gomoa will cost a staggering $10m.

WAFA left behind the multipurpose training facility when they moved base to Sogakope in 2014 as part of a move which saw them change name from Gomoa Fetteh Feyenoord to West African Football Academy.

Hearts of Oak are now looking to purchase the abandoned facility in Gomoa which is not entirely out of shape.

This deal will be a major feather in the cup of the current Hearts board who have incurred the wrath of the fans in recent weeks.

It will also serve as a permanent solution to Hearts’ training pitch crisis with the club yet to fully settle on a venue for training in recent years.

The team currently trains on a grassless pitch in Tesano. In recent years, Hearts have trained at the Legon Park, ATTC Park, Lotteries and their own facility at Pobiman but have left for one reason or the other.
