The Anambra Warriors boss has rejected reports linking his side to the Phobians winger

Ifeanya Ubah head coach Yaw Preko has denied reports that he has made advancement to sign Hearts of Oak midfielder Patrick Razak.

The 22-year-old, who worked under Preko at Hearts in 2016, has been in an excellent form for the Phobians this season in the Ghana Premier League and became one of the poster boys for the Black Stars B in the just-concluded 2017 Wafu Cup of Nations.

Razak made four assists in the tournament, including three in the final against Nigeria, to help Maxwell Konadu's men lift the trophy in a 4-1 drubbing.

"Ifeanyi Ubah have not on any day thought about the need to make a move for Hearts of Oak's Patrick Razak," Preko told Fox FM.

"I don't know where these stories are emanating from because I've not revealed such news to anyone. How much do Nigerian players even earn that we can plan to buy a Ghanaian player with $1,000,000 as the bidding price?

"Razak is a good player and every club will like to have him but we do not have him in mind ahead of the new season as reported in Ghana," he said.

Preko admitted that he would one day like to return to Hearts of Oak.

"I'm in Nigeria to work but I may return home one day and continue there. I will not rule out a return to Hearts. Coaching is my professional job after playing football so I'm open to every Ghanaian club whenever I return to Ghana."

Preko guided Ifeanya to finish seventh in the Nigerian Professional Football League last season.
