The forward was expected to replace former Hearts of Oak striker Mahatma Otoo who left the Club four seasons ago.
According to Arthur, a deal was agreed to join the Rainbow Club from Liberty Professionals but for last intrusion which prevented him from making a dream move to join one of the biggest Club’s in the country.
“I was supposed to replace Mahatma Otoo under coach Duncan upon my return from Asec Mimmosa to Feyernood (now wafa) but the deal didn’t go through, So I traveled outside and came back again and I had two options in hearts of oak and liberty but I opted for liberty because of my family” he spoke to Asempa FM.
“I nearly moved to Hearts of Oak in the 2016/2017 league season but hearts of oak Hearts couldn’t meet my demands so I decided to end my contract with Liberty to improve upon the 8 goals I scored the previous season which I had 11 goals, so I was on holidays when Aduana approached but they weren’t that concrete, but for kotoko it never happened,”…. “Honestly In my heart I want to play for Hearts of Oak”. He stressed.
Arthur is now on the books of Tanzania powerhouse Azam FC after joining the Club as a free agent having ended his deal with Liberty Professionals.
