Abbey reveals possibility of joining European club next season

The Phobians skipper has conceded he would consider leaving the club if his demands are not met during negotiations

Hearts of Oak captain Thomas Abbey has admitted he will leave the club ahead of next season if his demands are not met.

The 23-year-old's contract will be over in December and although the Phobians leadership has offered him a new deal, he insists he would consider an offer from elsewhere, specifically Europe, if they don't improve it.

"I can’t promise Hearts of Oak fans of my stay at the club ahead of next season since anything can happen," Abbey told ATL FM.

"This is because I’m still in negotiations with the management; therefore, if they are able to meet my demands, I will then renew my contract.

"However, if they are not able to meet my demands then I think Hearts fans will not see me in the rainbow colours next season.

“Even if the negotiations don’t go well as planned, my next destination will be in Europe. I will join one of the club's in Europe and hope for the best but I can promise that I will not join any local club apart from playing for Hearts of Oak,” he added.

Abbey scored 13 goals last season in the Ghana Premier League and provided three assists as he finished behind Hans Kwofie, who won the the topscorer's award with 17 goals.
