Hearts of Oak midfielder Samudeen Ibrahim has revealed he has had many offers from abroad though he’s left the final decision to the club.
Ibrahim joined the Phobians on a three-year deal from lower-tier side King Solomon Babies and quickly established himself in the team with his silky display.
But his superb start to his Hearts of Oak career was truncated when he suffered an ankle injury during a Ghana Premier League match against New Edubiase United.
The mercurial enforcer returned to the pitch after four months on the sideline but could not replicate his early season form, which culminated in him being benched for the second stanza of the campaign.
The 21-year-old, however, put his first season troubles behind him as he became an integral part of the side during their run-in to finishing 3rd in the league last season as well as their runners up finish in the FA Cup competition.
And following his remarkable performance in the season gone by, he’s been linked with a move away from the club but he emphatically intimated that his future is in the hands of the club.
“I have had many offers from abroad but the final decision lies with the club and I wouldn’t want to leave the club through the back door, so I have left everything for them to decide,” Samudeen disclosed to GHANAsoccernet.com
“I wouldn’t have any problem should I stay for another year because after all I have a contract with them and I don’t know what the future will bring but like I said, I’ve prepared my mind for whatever decision they will take.”
