Report claims Asante Kotoko and the Middle East currently seem to be the two possible destinations for Mohammed Alhassan who has been informed by Accra Hearts of Oak to find a new club.
Alhassan fell down the pecking order at the Rainbows camp following the arrival of Coach Slavko Matic, starting just three GPL games.
Signing a new defender will be a key priority for Coach Seydou Zerbo, considering their defensive blunder this season as they aim to extend their GPL dominance.
And Alhassan will be much more impressive when he joins the defence of the Porcupine Warriors in January.
The centre-back will bring a winning mentality to the squad which is one of the most fundamental requirements at the club.
Despite Kotoko’s good run this season, conceding goals from set-pieces is an area of concern for the Porcupines. A shortage of tall players, interestingly, is one of the major causes of this outcome but Alhassan is tall and physical. His strength will be a huge for the club. Furthermore, his prowess in the air will make him a threat during set-pieces on both ends of the pitch.
The 30-year-old defender also appears to be attracted by the possibility of moving to the Middle East, with Iraq and Saudi Arabia being a potential destinations.
He was linked to join Iraqi Premier League side, Al Kahraba SC in July according According to an Iraqi journalist Hamza Dhia but the deal was turned down before he signed an improved contract with Hearts of Oak.
Mohammed Alhassan is leaving the Rainbows after four years. He joined them from former GPL side WAFA in 2018 and became one of the best defenders in the local league and has won five trophies.
He captained the team in the MTN FA finals against Bechem United as the Rainbows won with a 2-1 score to clinch their twelfth title in the history of the tournament.
