Accra Hearts of Oak center-back Inusah Musah will be out for the next six-eight weeks after undergoing an ankle surgery.
Musah has been out for the past eight weeks with an injury.
The hard working defender who last played in a League game against Berekum Chelsea went under the knife hence expected to stay out for the next 60 days.
“He [Inusah] is at the early stages of his rehab and there will be some weeks before he will be able to play again. The possibility to play is good and so he should be back playing,” head coach Frank Nuttall told accraheartsofoaksc.com
“Inusah went for surgery about a week ago and so far he is doing very well,” Anum revealed. “Ankle injuries usually take six-eight weeks to heal and so Inusah will be out within that period. But he is doing well at the moment and we are positive all will go well for the defender.”
Coach Frank Nuttall will still be relying on the defensive partnership of Vincent Atinga and Richard Akrofi.
The 25-year-old won the best defender for last season Ghana Premier League season and they have been strong interest for him from other clubs.
Meanwhile, Accra Hearts of Oak have been boosted with the return of midfielder Leonard Tawiah and defender Anthony Nimo.
The two players have been passed fit ahead of Sunday’s League game against Liberty Professionals at the Accra Sports Stadium.

Nimo on the other hand has been nursing an injury sustained at training having last featured for Hearts of Oak in the Ghana @60 anniversary match against Kotoko in Accra.
The two players joined group training as head Coach Frank Nuttall prepared his side for the test on Sunday.
