Hearts of Oak leading goal keeper Ben Mensah says he welcomes any good goalkeeper who will come and support him and the team to win the league and other competitions.

Speaking to Yours Truly in an exclusice interview, he said the inconsisten form of the club worries him a lot, as he wants the Phobians to win the league after so many years.

He expressed that if Hearts of Oak has three world class keepers, it would bring competition and the best out of them.

He said Ernest Sowah formerly of Asante Kotoko is good and if he wants to join Hearts, he is welcomed to help the club win the local competitions and compete in Africa.
“If we have good keepers and one is injured or not available, the other good one can be used and we shall achieve our results and get the win and winning bonus” he said.
Reports reaching us state that Hearts of Oak have reached a two-year deal with goalkeeper Ernest Sowah in the ongoing Ghanaian transfer window.

Sowah, 30 became a free agent after mutually terminating his contract with Asante Kotoko last Friday after he was deemed surplus to requirement by the Kumasi-based club.

The Phobians have opened negotiations with the experienced shot-stopper in an attempt to finalize the deal as soon as possible before the league resumes from the two-week break.

The once-capped Ghana international was heavily linked with a switch to Hearts of Oak two season ago before he made a last-ditch move to join the Porcupine Warriors.

Hearts of Oak have encountered massive goalkeeping problems in the ongoing campaign – having conceded 13 goals despite using their then three registered first team goalkeeper in just 11 games into the season.

Sowah is expected to fill in the void left by Theophilus Jackson, who was part of the four players the club released last Friday for non-performance – the rest are Joshua Otoo, Cosmos Dauda, and Evans Quao.
