Liberty Professionals defender William Dankyi has completed a three-year deal to Hearts of Oak, both clubs have confirmed.

Dankyi has become the second major signing by Hearts in the second transfer window following the arrival of goalkeeper Ernest Sowah from Asante Kotoko this week.

He is a member of Ghana U20 team and will likely play a role when the Black Satellites face Algeria in the second leg of 2019 Africa Cup of Nations at the Cape Coast Sports Stadium on Sunday.
