Hearts of Oak have announced the signing of former WAFA captain and defender Mohammed Alhassan.

The highly-rated centre-back joins the Phobians on a free transfer following expiration of his contract last month.

Kim Grant has identified weaknesses in the central defence of the team and Alhassan is expected to provide big competition for Benjamin Agyare and James Sewornu.

Alhassan becomes the second player after Goalkeeper Richmond Ayi from the renowned academy to sign for the club in a week.
