Midfielders Benjamin Afutu and Gladson Awako are among 36 players registered by Hearts of Oak for their 2021-22 CAF Champions League campaign.

Initial reports claimed Afutu was excluded by Hearts because he refused to extend his contract, but the official list includes the 25-year-old.

Even though Afutu’s contract has expired, the Phobians registered him as they are confident the midfielder will agree on a new deal in the coming days.

Gladson Awako

Former Great Olympics captain Awako has also been registered despite Hearts of Oak yet to officially announce his signing.

He is joined by other new faces such as returnee striker Kofi Kordzi, Seidu Suraj, Enock Asubonteng and Isaac Agyenim Boateng.
