Former Hearts of Oak captain Fatawu Mohammed leaves Ghana to complete Bani Sweef move in Egypt
Former Hearts of Oak captain Fatawu Mohammed has departed Ghana for Egypt ahead of his proposed move to Bani Sweef in Egypt.
The experienced defender is without a club after being released by Hearts of Oak after almost a decade at the club.
According to reports, the defender has left the country to seal a move to an Egyptian club in the ongoing transfer window.
The deal is said to have been brokered by the CEO of Sports Light Consult, Nana Kwarteng, who has offered a lot of Ghanaian players the opportunity to play outside the country.
The 30-year-old joined Hearts in 2013 from Real Tamale United and has since been an important player in the team having contributed to the successes across the period.
He helped the Ghanaian giants to a league title in the 2020-21 season which they had not won since 2008 and two FA Cups but lost his position in recent times, forcing the club to let him go.
He also served as captain of the club since 2018 but he was stripped of the captaincy when Serbian trainer Slavko Matic took over the head coach position after the exit of Samuel Boadu.
Mohammed during his time as a Phobian player earned himself a call-up to the Ghana national team and has four caps to his credit.
