Ghanaian second-tier side New Edubiase United have confirmed reaching a deal with Hearts of Oak for midfielder Salim Adams.
The 19-year-old signed as a replacement for midfield dynamo Benjamin Afutu who has decided against signing a new deal with the capital club.
“Yes. I can confirm that Salim has joined Hearts of Oak,” an unnamed top official of Edubiase told Ghana Sports Online.
He becomes Hearts’ fifth signing after Enock Asubonteng, Gladson Awako, Kofi Kordzi and Isaac Agyenim Boateng.
Salim who was a member of the Ghana U20 side that won the WAFU U20 Championship in Benin last year has been identified by the Phobians as a perfect replacement for Benjamin Afutu who has reportedly failed to sign a new deal with the club.
Afutu, who contract runs out later in October, has failed to commit himself to a new deal and it has triggered Hearts to sign the midfielder.
The midfielder enjoyed an overly impressive season with the Movers in the Division One League and his performance has convinced the Phobians to grab him.
