Listen to article

Accra, June 7, GNA - The management of Accra Hearts of Oak Sporting Club has suspended the club's key defender, Dan Quaye for six months for breach of contract.

A statement signed by Mr Ashford Tettey Oku, Administrative Manager of the club copied to the GNA Sports Desk said the suspension takes immediate effect.

Quaye joined Hearts of Oak from Accra Great Olympics in 1999 after featuring for the Black Starlets that placed second in the World Under-17 tournament in Egypt.

Reports have it that Quaye whose contract with Hearts expired on March 1, has written to the club requesting them to release his card to rival side, Kumasi Asante Kotoko Football Club.

According to sources close to the GNA Sports, Hearts agreed to a new three-year contract worth 170 million cedis after the expiration of Dan Quaye's contract.

The source said even though the stalwart player initially agreed to the deal, he later came back demanding three hundred million cedis, an amount the Club felt was too much.

Dan Quaye during his stay with Hearts played an instrumental role towards the Club's win of the CAF Champions League trophy in 2000 and the CAF Confederation Cup in 2005.

He also won six league and two FA Cup trophies with Hearts.
