Hearts have been given a 14-day ultimatum to pay their ex-player Theophilus Apoh 17,000 Ghana cedis over unpaid signing on fee.
Apoh dragged the capital-based club to the Player Status Committee after completing his three-year stay with the club.
Hearts bought the player for 30,000 Ghana cedis but managed to pay only 13,000 Ghana cedis during his three-year spell at the club.
The Ghana Football Association has directed the capital-based side to fufil their contractual obligation to the the 21-year-old by paying him the rest of his enticement fee.
The exciting midfielder has since been granted floating status- meaning he is free to sign for any club that meet his asking price.
