“Accra Hearts of Oak is delighted to confirm Ernest Sowah has signed for the club,” a club’s official statement said.
Hearts goalkeeping coach Jerry Agyei lauded the qualities of Sowah and believes he will help them reach their goals.
“We are happy to welcome Ernest Sowah into the Hearts family. He’s an experienced goalkeeper and we believe he will help bolster our goalkeeping department in our search for glorious,” he said.
Sowah has become the second player within four months to join Hearts from rivals Kotoko after Evans Quao.
