BK Hacken sporting director Sonny Karlsson has rejected reports of ongoing talks to sign former Hearts of Oak striker Kwame Kizito in a three-year deal.

The 21-year-old parted ways with the Phobians last month after he refused to extend his contract, bringing to an end a three-year stay in Accra. 

Kizito was declared free agent by Ghana Football Association's player status committee, making him eligible to join any club of his choice but the Allsvenskan chief has revealed that although, the youngster was offered to them for assessment, they have no plans to sign him ahead of the 2018 season.

"At the moment, there is nothing like negotiations ongoing between us and any player called Kwame Kizito," Karlsson told SVT Sports .

"We have no interest in the player as reports suggest. We are offered many players most times and of course we always check up the player but not all get the chance to represent us," he added.

Kizito, who was part of the Black Stars B squad that won the 2017 Wafu Cup of Nations, would have become the second Ghanaian at Hacken after Nasiru Mohammed, if his deal was finalised.

Goal understands that some second-tier clubs in Sweden as well as clubs in Sudan and South Africa have expressed interest in the player.
