Hearts of Oak CEO Mark Noonan has confirmed the contracts of four players including striker Cosmos Dauda have been terminated.
New signings-goalkeeper Theophilus Jackson and defenders Evans Qauo and Joshua Otoo -have also been released.
With the second transfer window opened locally, the dismissed players can sign for clubs in the Ghana Premier League or head abroad when the window opens on 1 June.
Noonan Tweeted: ” I can confirm we have given 4 players, E. Quao, T. Jackson, J. Otoo and C. Dauda, permission to seek opportunities outside of Hearts. They are good men + professionals. With the window open we felt it best to communicate our plans with them directly and transparently.
”We thank them for their service and will work with them throughout this transition period. Very difficult decisions all.”
Hearts have been chequered this season after ten matches where they lie 8th with four wins, three draws and four defeats.
