Liberty goalkeeper Agyei explains botched move to Hearts

Liberty Professionals goalkeeper Daniel Agyei has revealed that the deal with city rivals Hearts of Oak has hit a snag.

The 26-year-old, according to reports, was demanding $22,162 per season ($1,900 monthly) from Hearts top hierarchy, before agreeing a three-year deal but the club failed to meet his demands.

“Hearts came back with an offer after the initial negotiation but it was difficult for me to accept,” Agyei told Graphic Sports.

“I expected the parties involved to sit down and discuss an acceptable package.

“I don’t want to talk about the money in the proposal my counsel and club made to Hearts because it is a matter between two parties,” he added.

Goal understands that Agyei’s contract with Liberty will end in February and can join any club of his choice as a free agent if he declines to extend his stay.

Agyei became a household name in Ghana when his heroics against Brazil won 10-man Ghana squad the 2009 Fifa World Youth Championship title held in Egypt after a penalty shootout.

Hearts have axed four of their new arrivals after their poor performance in the international friendly against Al Ahli Tripoli according to reports. They include Prince Boadu, John Abaidoo, Patrick Razak and Ben Doe Atiso.
