The Phobians chief has revealed that the midfielder only joined the Danish club for assessment

Hearts of Oak management member Alhaji Akambi has denied reports in the local media that poster boy Winful 'Skillful' Cobinnah has joined Danish giants Viborg FF in a three-year deal for a fee of £75,000.

The 23-year-old arrived in Denmark over the weekend and began training with the club on Tuesday but Akambi insists he is on a two-week trial.

"Winful Cobbinah hasn't been sold to Viborg. He was rather invited for a trial so it is a not permanent deal," Akambi told Happy FM.

"He is a wonderful player and has the capabilities of making it anywhere he will find himself but for the records, he hasn't signed with them.

"That will depend on his performance within this period and we hope for the best for him," he added.

Cobbinah, who rejoined the Phobians midway last season, was part of the Black Stars B squad that won the 2017 Wafu Cup of Nations.
