Accra Hearts of Oak are scheduled to unveil former Ghanaian international, Kim Grant, as the new Technical Director of the club on Thursday.

The 46-year-old former technical director of Ebusua Dwarfs and Elmina Sharks is expected to be handed a dual role in the club as he takes over from stop-gap coach, Seth Hoffmann, as the new head coach of the club.

This was confirmed to the Graphic Sports Online by a close source who said that, “Grant would be unveiled as the director of football and will also take charge of the first team as the coach”.

Details of the contract was, however, not made available. It is also not known if the Sekondi-born striker would be in the dug-out when the Phobians play their 107th anniversary game against Inter Allies at Tema on Sunday.

Grant is expected to add his depth of experience to the Hearts bench, having started his career with Charlton Athletic before playing for other clubs such as Luton Town, Millwall, Yeovil Twon, AFC Wimbledon and others.

His managerial experience has also taken him to clubs such as Working, before returning to coach FC Takoradi. He also worked as the technical director of Cape Coast Ebusua Dwarfs where he helped to save them from relegation in 2014.

In April last year, Grant was appointed as the head coach of Bangladeshi club, Saif Sport Club Limited, before returning home to take up a role as the technical director of Elmina Sharks in December that same year.
