Ghana Premier League giants, Hearts of Oak have completed signing of former goalkeeper of perennial rival, Asante Kotoko.

The club announced signing of the experienced shot-stopper on a 2year deal.

Sowah put pen to paper this morning at the club’s secretariat after a successful negotiation.

A statement on the official website of the Accra based club read,

''We are happy to welcome Ernest Sowah into Hearts family,'' goalkeepers trainer Jerry Agyei told

''He is an experienced goalkeeper and we believe will help bolster our goalkeeping department.''

The former Berekum Chelsea custodian had months of sloth following allegations of bribery leveled against him by his former club, Kotoko.

He was accused of taking bribe by the club's chief executive officer following their final day defeat to Liberty Professionals for which he was spotted training with the youth side aiming for recall to the senior side but to no avail.

Sowah parted ways with Kotoko after a two year stint early this month on mutual terms after meeting with hierarchy of the club and decided his new feat with the phobians.

He joined the Porcupine Warriors in 2016 from Congolese side Don Bosco and played a role in the club's run to clinching the FA Cup trophy last season.

The Phobians were in a race with Aduana Stars and AshantiGold for the services of the once Black Stars shot-stopper.
