Christopher Bonney, former Hearts of Oak defender has said he decided not to renew his contract at the club because he did not fit in the plans of head coach, Edward Nii Odoom.
The defender and four other players were shown the exit by the hierarchy of the club last week Friday after the expiration of their contracts.
According to Bonney, extending his deal with the 19 times Ghana Premier League champions would have been a waste of his time.
“I didn’t renew my contract with Hearts because I was not fitting into the squad of the new coach," he told Kumasi based Otec FM.
"It would be time-wasting if I continued my stay at Hearts of Oak.
The former Kotoko and Ebusua Dwarfs player is now eyeing a move abroad following his exit from the Phobians.
“It’s very fortunate and a big privilege to play for both Kotoko and Hearts.
"It’s not easy for a player to serve the two biggest clubs in Ghana.
"Though my doors are open for any local club, I am now focusing on a foreign contract," he added.
Joseph Esso, Benjamin Agyare, Bernard Arthur and Abubakar Traore were also released by the Ghana Premier League giants.
