Yahaya Mohammed has revealed the real reason why he swerved Hearts of Oak to re-join Aduana Stars.
The Phobians were close in completing Mohammed’s deal but the Dormaa giants gazumped the former African champions to sign the bulky forward.
And according to the former Asante Kotoko man, he re-signed for Aduana Stars because the Phobians failed to meet his asking price.
“Of course upon my return from Tanzania, I had spoken to Hearts that I will be joining them but by the time Nana (Aduana Stars Patron) spoke to me, Hearts had not made a good offer.
“They wanted me for three years and the offer they were tabling was meagre compared to what Aduana Stars were offering me for two years.
“So I asked them to give me what Aduana were offering and I’ll play for three years but they were dragging their feet,” Mohammed told Kumas-based Fox FM..
“Regardless, I insisted, before accepting Aduana Stars’ offer that I wanted to play for Hearts so they should offer me what Aduana Stars were offering for me so that I’ll sign for them for three years. But they felt they had a policy they won’t go against.
“I was ready to play for Hearts but they didn’t do their job well and I slipped to Aduana Stars,” Yahaya noted.
Mohammed left Aduana Stars two season for Tanzanian side Azam FC but after the just a season he terminated hos contract.
