Ex-Santos' Mason Signs For Ghana's Hearts Of Oak

The Siya crew can reveal that former Santos left back, Mason October, has signed for Ghanaian giants, Hearts of Oak.

October has signed a three-season long deal, with the club set to host a press conference today to reveal the player. Representatives of the club and the player met this week and an agreement was reached after negotiations went smoothly.

He revealed that his contract was coming to an end at Santos and was enthusiastic about a new challenge.

October, 24, spoke to Soccer Laduma and expressed his delight in the move saying: “Everything is alright, I met the board members this week and discussed the contract and we came to an agreement. I signed a three-season long deal and they’re very welcoming.”

The player also said that former teammate, John Paintsil, assisted him in making the deal happen because of his prominence in Ghana.

“My contract was coming to an end at Santos and John Paintsil told me he can help me out, he phoned the club and organized for me. They were interested and keen.”

When asked about if he is up to the challenge despite the league being a physically demanding one, he said: “I’m happy, I’m not scared, not at all.”

Hearts of Oak will begin their pre-season training on July 1, whereby October will also report to duty for the club.

The Ghanaian side have been crowned Ghana League Champions on 20 ocassions, and have also had success in the CAF Champions League and CAF Confederation Cup, winning both competitions once, in 2000 and 2004 respectively.
