Kotoko are hoping to sign Hearts outcast Ollenu Ashitey as the transfer market heats up in Ghana. 

The youngster is believed to be unsettled in the capital following a difficult campaign in the recent concluded season.

The former D’international playmaker is considering opting out of his contract which expires next year in search of regular football.

Ashitey has confirmed has admitted he’s held initial talks with Kotoko but inists he will only leave with the blessing of the 2000 African champions.

“Yes it’s true Kotoko officials have spoken to me but at the moment I’m still a player of Hearts,” he told Cape Coast-based ATL FM

“I want to respect my contract and so they (Hearts) will decide my future.

“But of course football is my career and so it will be better to go to a place where you can get regular playing time. We have to wait and see how things go in the coming days.”
