Former Kumasi Asante Kotoko striker Yahaya Mohammed has revealed the reason why he snubbed Accra Hearts of Oak to Champions Aduana Stars.
The experienced forward was on the verge of joining the Phobians before Aduana gazumped Hearts for their former player.
According to Yahaya Mohammed, negotiations between himself and Hearts of Oak were ongoing but the amount the Phobians were putting accross did not sit well with him so when Aduana came calling he did not think twice because their offer was better.
“Of course upon my return from Tanzania, I had spoken to Hearts that I will be joining them but by the time Nana (Aduana Stars Patron) spoke to me, Hearts had not made a good offer.
“They wanted me for three years and the offer they were tabling was meagre compared to what Aduana Stars were offering me for two years.
“So I asked them to give me what Aduana were offering and I’ll play for three years but they were dragging their feet,” Mohammed told Kumas-based Fox FM..
“Regardless, I insisted, before accepting Aduana Stars’ offer that I wanted to play for Hearts so they should offer me what Aduana Stars were offering for me so that I’ll sign for them for three years. But they felt they had a policy they won’t go against.
“I was ready to play for Hearts but they didn’t do their job well and I slipped to Aduana Stars,” Yahaya noted.
Yahaya rejoined the Fire Boys on a two year deal two seasons after leaving for Tanzania.
