Accra Hearts of Oak SC have reportedly completed a surprise signing on the local terrain ahead of the second registration window.
The Phobian shook off competition from four other clubs to secure the services of former WAFA SC star.
Having run down his contract with Aduana Stars FC, Celeb Amankwa became the hottest commodity on the local scene ahead second registration window.
Ashgold SC, Medeama SC and Legon Cities FC all showed interest in the former WAFA SC defensive stalwart in what has since ignited a transfer war on the local scene.
Reliable sources close to 442gh.com however hinted the versatile defender is set to ink a professional deal with Accra Hearts of Oak SC in the coming weeks.
His arrival will fill in for the space created by the exit of Benjamin Agyare from the club as they chase their first league crown in 11 years.
Kosta Papic’s side currently has Nuru Sulley, Robert Addo Sowah and Mohammed Alhassan as the trusted central defenders for the season.
Celeb Amankwa can play as a central defender and across the two full back as well.
His potential partnership with Robert Sowah at the back is expected to seal the defensive woes of the capital based side.
