Former Hearts of Oak defender Samuel Inkoom has left Ghana Premier League club Hearts of Oak after joining last year.
The former Asante Kotoko defender returned to the Ghana Premier League in April 2022 by joining the Phobians after his contract with Georgian club Torpedo Kutaisi expired in January 2022.
However, the 34-year-old has parted ways with Heart of Oak following a productive period in which he scored two goals in 10 appearances in the second half of the 2021/22 season which helped his team defend the FA Cup title and another 21 appearances in the previous campaign.
Samuel Inkoom praised the Hearts of Oak administration, Board Chairman Togbe Afede XIV, and the entire fandom for the chance in a social media statement confirming his departure.
“I bow out of the Phobia family with pride and fulfillment, thanks to Torgbe Afede XIV and the Amazing family. Phobia! Masters.👏🏾💪🏽 @HeartsOfOakGH,” Samuel Inkoom posted on his social media pages cited by sportsworldghana.com.
