Dominic Eshun - Finally joins Hearts

Ghana Premier League side Accra Hearts of Oak have finally captured embattled Karela United defender Dominic Eshun.

Eshun, 19, signed a deal with Hearts of Oak in November 2018, while he was still under contract with his mother club, Karela.

This became a tussle between the two clubs with Karela United reporting the case to the Player Status Committee of the Ghana Football Association.

The Player Status Committee on Thursday, May 2, 2019, ruled in favour of Karela United indicating that the player was still under contract and had been ordered to re-join the team.

However, on Tuesday, a statement on the Phobians Twitter handle read: "Our new player Dominic Eshun is eager to get started and, wants to repay the faith the club has shown in him. Let's show him plenty of support as he chats a new path which hopefully will lead to glory." PHOOBIAA.....MASTERS!!!!

The statement, however, did not spell out the details of the contract.

Earlier, the club posted a recorded video of the player in which he said he could not wait for the season to start in order to display his talent.

"Since I was a child my dream has always been to play for Accra Hearts of Oak. My grandfather used to support Hearts and he told me about the history of the club. My grandfather said that even when it was left for a second to end proceedings on the pitch, the players always did wonders.

"My grandfather also said that whenever they sung the club's anthem, it gingered the players and boosted their confidence to overpower their opponents," Eshun recounted in the short documentary.

He continued: "I wish the league has started and we have come on the pitch to hear the fans sing the anthem. My name is Dominic Eshun. Never say die until the bones are rotten."
