The Miners are in the market for Bashir Hayford's replacement after he resigned on Friday

Former Hearts of Oak managers Kenichi Yastuhashi and Eddie Ansah as well as former Medeama coach Tom Strand have applied for the vacant coaching role at Ashanti Gold, Goal understands.

The Miners are without a manager ahead of their Ghana Premier League matchday nine home game against Bolga All Stars on Sunday following Bashir Hayford’s resignation on Friday.
