The Phobians have rejected reports that the former Bechem United striker will be joining them for the remainder of the season

Hearts of Oak are not eyeing a move for Al Hilal striker Abednego Tetteh, according to communication director Kwame Opare Addo.

The 26-year-old was released by the Sudanese giants a fortnight ago after the club failed to qualify from the group stage of the Caf Champions League. Although, he is a free agent, the Phobians insist he is not on their cards as they hope to end their run without a major trophy.

"The recommendations must first come from the head of the technical team. It's not any other person to decide whether we go in for player A or B. If the coach feels he needs Abednego Tetteh, he will look at him but for now he's not on our wishlist since his name hasn't pop up officially," Opare told Happy FM.

"I can only look at it from my angle of my association with football, but as to whoever will be best for the team then I think the coach will decide that.

"Abednego is not a bad player. He has done it before and everybody knows what he can do going forward.

"We are looking for the best players for our team, so if there is someone we all think has the quality and can help the team, then why not," he added.

Hearts are third on the league log with 36 points, seven points behind leaders Wafa and have a game in hand against Asante Kotoko.
