Accra Hearts of Oak have parted ways with defender Mohammed Alhassan, with almost 12 months left in his contract.
The decision to mutually terminate the former WAFA defender’s contract was arrived at after the two parties failed to reach an agreement on a contract extension.
“With reference to the mutual termination of the employment contract agreement between the player (Mohammed Alhassan) and the club; The player is free to join any club of his choice,” a portion of the letter sent to the player read.
Alhassan signed for Hearts in December 2018 after leaving WAFA SC and has spent the last four seasons as an integral member of the Hearts of Oak team where he featured in over 90 games.
The 30-year-old was instrumental for the Rainbow club when they won a double, the Ghana Premier League and FA Cup in the 2020-21 season under coach Samuel Boadu.
He also contributed immensely to retaining the FA Cup title the following season.
Alhassan was part of the Ghana home-based national team that eliminated Benin and Nigeria to secure qualification to the 2022 CHAN tournament in Algeria.
However, he didn’t make the final squad for the tournament which kicks off in few days time.
