The defender claims the Phobians have made an advancement to sign him ahead of the upcoming season

Medeama defender Amos Korankye has revealed that Hearts of Oak top hierarchy have opened talks with his counsel in a possible transfer deal.

The 22-year-old joined the Yellow and Mauve from Sekondi Hasaacas last season and although, Medeama battled relegation throughout the campaign, his performance did not go unnoticed with coach Frank Nuttall hoping to bring him to Accra to boost his defence.

"I received a call from Hearts of Oak management last week but I am yet to meet them officially with my agent," Korankye told Nhyira FM.

"I hope that negotiations will go on well unlike last season when I couldn't join them despite agreeing personal terms. There was a breakup along the line so I had to join Medeama but I'm ready to travel to Accra this time around so I'm waiting patiently.

"Medeama will make big money from this deal if everything goes as expected. I pray that Medeama owner Moses Armah Parker will allow me leave because I'm ready to play for Hearts next season," he added.

Hearts finished fourth last season and lost the FA Cup final to rivals Asante Kotoko, extending their run without trophy to eight years.
