Ghana Premier League club Hearts of Oak have reached an agreement with Joseph Esso, who left the club last week due to contract disagreement, to return.
According to reports, Esso wanted a one-year contract with increase in personal wages but was offered two more years with lesser pay.
But in a meeting between Hearts’ management and the player on Thursday, a new deal was agreed, multiple sources familiar with the matter say.
When it was announced last Friday that Esso and three others had left due to failed contract negotiations, the club received backlash from the public particularly its fans, who questioned why a player of Esso’s calibre was let go.
With the Esso issue now settled, it is, however, not clear if the club will re-sign the others: Benjamin Agyare, Christopher Bonney, Bernard Arthur and Abubakar Troare.
Esso played 14 games in the aborted 2019/20 Ghana Premier League, scoring 3 goals in the process.
