Kwame Opare Addo has dismissed media reports suggesting Hearts of Oak are in talks to sign former Asante Kotoko defender, Eric Donkor.

Donkor, who parted ways with AshantiGold at the end of the 2019/20 Ghana Premier League season has been linked to several clubs in the domestic league.

The experienced left-back has since been linked with a move to Hearts of Oak.

However, the Communications Director of Hearts of Oak, Opare Addo has debunked the reports.

“We have William Dankyi, Rady Ovouka and Robert Addo who doubles as an excellent centre back in that position. Why should we go in for another left-back when we have sold none?" he said in an interview with Kumasi based Luv FM.

"He [Eric Donkor] is an excellent player; no doubts about that. He has contributed his quota so well to Ghana football and wherever he has gone and he is my personal friend.

“The reality is that, if it is not the case why do we want to force a story on the supporters which some of them go ahead and believe, creating pressure on management that you need to do certain things? This does not help anybody,” Mr Addo stated.

Eric Donkor, 28 trained with Auroras, the junior side of Hearts of Oak before joining Asante Kotoko in 2011 where he won three league titles and two FA Cups and rose to become vice-captain.
