South African Keeper Set To Join Hearts Of Oak

Accra Hearts of Oak are reported to have expressed interest in signing Former Baroka FC goalkeeper Oscarine Masuluke for the of the 2017/18 league season.

Oscarine Masuluke could don the Rainbow colours should he reach an agreement with Management of the former African Champions.

The move comes as an afterthought by the Phobians to augment the team's goalkeeping department, which is has four goalkeepers.

The 24-year old South African is currently a free agent, having parted ways with the Limpopo side following reports that he was found drinking on the team bus.

He could now be headed to Ghana with Hearts eager to secure his signature with sources indicating that he impressed the technical team with his performances in Absa Premiership.

“He’s leaving on Sunday or Monday for Ghana. He’ll be assessed by Hearts of Oak and they will take it from there. It’ll be nice to have a player from South Africa in West Africa,” source privy to the trial talks told Soka25east.

The Giyani-born goalkeeper is best remembered for his goal against Orlando Pirates in Polokwane last season – a bicycle kick at the death – that was named second in the 2017 FIFA Puskas Award, losing to Olivier Giroud whose goal was elected the winner

The Phobians have already registered 3 foreign players among 13 new signings for the 2017/18 season.

If the move becomes successful, Oscarine Masuluke will be the second player from South Africa to join the Phobians after compatriot Shaun Mason October, who played for the Phobians in the 2015/16 season.
