Hearts of Oak goalkeeper Benjamin Mensah says he would welcome competition from anybody following reports linking former Asante Kotoko goalkeeper Ernest Sowah to the Phobians ahead of the second transfer window.

Hearts’ technical team are currently in the market after resolving to offload underperforming goalkeeper Theophilus Jackson and three other players.

Sowah, who recently parted ways with Kotoko, has been identified as one of the players expected to complete a switch in the coming days.

“Having three world class goalkeepers would bring competition in the department and eventually bring the best out of each,” Mensah said as quoted by GNA.

“Ernest Sowah is a good goalkeeper and if he wants to join Hearts, he is welcomed to help the club in order to win the local competitions and compete in Africa club competitions as well.

“If we have good keepers and one is injured or not available, the other good one can be used and we shall achieve our results and also receive winning bonus as a result," he added.

Hearts occupy 10th position with 15 points, six points adrift of leaders Ashanti Gold after 12 games.
