He indicated that management would not renege on their commitment to safeguard the wellbeing of the players.

Nii Adjei said he would be there to defend the league title and also participate in the Confederation of African Football (CAF) Champions League. “I am not joining Hearts of Oak. Negotiations relating to my contract with Kumasi Asante Kotoko have already started. Those reports are not true. I am certain that I would play for Kotoko next season” said Nii Adjei. The player confirmed the Public and Supporters Relations Manager, Listowell Yesu Bukarson’s disclosure to Kotoko Express about management’s determination to re-engage him.
