Published on: 01 December 2019

Hearts of Oak have completed the signing of former Elmina Sharks goalkeeper Richard Attah on a free transfer ahead of the 2019/20 Ghana Premier League season.

The 24-year-old penned a deal with the Phobians after leaving fellow Premiership side Elmina Sharks.

Duration and terms of his move to the capital club remain undisclosed.

A club statement read: ''The Hearts of Oak management is delighted to announce the signing of goalkeeper Richard Attah. He has signed a long term deal with the club.''

He is expected to battle for the No.1 spot with Richmond Ayi and Ben Mensah.

Attah has established himself as one of the best shot-stoppers in the Ghana Premier League since joining Elmina Sharks from second-tier side Okyeman Planners ahead of the 2016/17 season.

He kept an impressive eight clean sheets in 11 matches for Elmina Sharks in the Ghana Football Association (GFA) Normalisation Committee Special Competition.
