Versatile midfielder Rahim Ayew passed a Hearts of Oak medical on Thursday ahead of signing a contract with the Accra giants, MTNFootball.com can exclusively reveal.
The first son of Ghana legend Abedi Pele went through the medical examination at the Ridge Hospital in Accra on Thursday.
He was successful as doctors passed him fit to give the Phobians a massive transfer coup with the imminent signing of the player who was part of Ghana’s 2010 World Cup squad.
He will be unveiled next week if they agree on a deal on his terms of contract.
The 25-year-old has been training with Hearts for the past two weeks and becomes the club’s marquee signing so far.
Ayew has been available for a free transfer after mutually agreeing a deal to part ways with Belgian Pro League side SK Lierse in May.
He is making a return to the Ghana Premier League after featuring relegated Sekondi Eleven Wise in the 2009/2010 season.
An impressive debut season earned him a move to Egyptian giants Zamalek where he had a frustrating spell.
