Accra Hearts of Oak SC star, Abdul Umar Manaf had joined newly promoted team Real Tamale United FC, Sportsworldghana.com can confirm.
The diminutive playmaker was not registered by the Phobians for the upcoming campaign in the champions league and the domestic league respectively.
The 27-year-old versatile midfielder played 31 matches for the Rainbow Boys and scored three goals and provided three assists in the 2020-21 Ghana Premier League season.
He has joined the Pride of the North Club on a season long loan deal with an option to make the deal a permanent one at the end of the upcoming season.
Manaf was a pivot for the Accra-based club in the first round of the league season but lost his place in the starting lineup under coach Samuel Boadu.
He helped Hearts of Oak SC to lift their first trophy in 12 years as they won the domestic double.
