Hearts reject Samudeen’s 14-day layoff reports

Hearts of Oak have dispelled earlier reports that midfielder Samudeen Ibrahim is to spend two weeks in the treatment room.

The youngster sustained a foot injury in the Phobians’ 1-0 win over New Edubiase in their 2015-16 Ghana Premier League opener on Sunday.

Following medical tests on Tuesday, Hearts’ official twitter account confirmed that the player would likely spend 14 days on the sidelines – a statement the club have subsequently rebuffed.

“It is not true that Samudeen has been ruled out for two weeks as earlier reports suggested,” Hearts communications director Kwame Opare Addo told ATLFM.

“But the truth of the matter is that, the surgery [showed] the degree of his injury to be a minor one.

“So he is currently under special training with the hope that he recovers as early as possible to join his colleagues for our weekend’s encounter with Medeama.”

Samudeen joined Heartson on a three-year deal from Division One League side King Solomon FC in January, a month after being adjudged Best Player of last season’s lower tier league.
