Defender Alfred Nelson says he rejected Hearts of Oak for AshantiGold because the Miners showed they wanted him more.

The centre back-cum-midfielder has penned a two-year deal with the Ghanaian champions after returning from Kuwait.

He was linked with giants Hearts but decided to join the Obuasi-based.

Nelson said: “They [Hearts of Oak] did what they could but AshGold were pressing more,” he said.

The local Black Stars defender is a perfect replacement for Lawrence Lartey who has joined South African Premier League side Ajax Cape Town.
