Ghanaian striker Kofi Kordzi has departed the country as he nears a switch to Qatari side Muaither SC from Accra Hearts of Oak.

Rumors of the Doha based side’s interest in the burly forward made headlines on media platforms some weeks ago after Hearts turned down their initial offer.

As reported earlier an agreement has been reached between the two clubs with the player granted permission to travel and complete the necessary processes which includes passing medicals.

Per FMIG sources, Kordzi’s transfer fee is set at $150,000 with a 20% onward transfer fee going for Hearts subsequently.

Kofi Kordzi, nicknamed ‘The Aveyime Drogba’ has won over most Hearts fans for his commitment to the club both on and off the pitch since joining the club from lower tier side Royal FC in January 2019.

He was one of their best players in the now cancelled 2019-20 Ghana Premier League season.

Muaither SC, founded as Al Shabab in 1996 is a Qatari multi-sports club based in Muaither. They play in the Qatar Stars League, the country’s top-flight league.
