Frank Nuttall told to refund US$ 56,000 to Hearts of Oak

Hearts of Oak are demanding US$ 56,000 from sacked coach Frank Nuttall as 'illegal'' monies pocketed from the transfer of some of their players, according to reports.

This was after the Scotsman was found guilty of transfering some Hearts players without the knowledge of the club.

According to a leaked report of the three-member committee set up to look into the unethical behaviour of the coach, it revealed that Nuttall was paid US$ 50,000 and US$ 6,000 respectively from the transfer of two unnamed players.

Hearts of Oak last week, confirmed that it had suspended head coach Nuttall who had breached several of the club's code of conduct.


Nuttall who led Hearts to the MTN FA Cup final last year has become a person of interest in the mass exodus of players from the club.

According to unconfirmed reports, Nuttall was signing on players to an agency who in turn sell these players to foreign teams.

Hearts of Oak have not officially parted ways with Nuttall but is believed that the relationship between the club and coach is damaged beyond repair.
