They believe that this is an indication that the 32-year-old who played for Dnipro, DC United in the Major League Soccer as well as a host of other clubs in Europe before finally returning to Georgia to feature for Torpedo, will be joining the club as his colleague, Muntari, did.

Samuel Inkoom training with Hearts of Oak. Wow! Won't be bad to have another top returnee joining Phobia for the good of #GPL. Inkoom + Muntari = GHC 2 salaries p3. Fine cost cutting opportunity. Controlling the wage bill!!! 😂

Their assertion is not out of place as Samuel Inkoom reiterated his desire to return to the Ghana Premier League following the end of his contract with Georgia side Torpedo Kutaisi.

Inkoom says he is interested in a return to play in Ghana’s top-flight, where it all started for him.
Speaking on Sports Link on Joy FM, he said, “I would love to play in the Ghana Premier League because this is where I started. If I go out [Europe] there and learn more I think it’s good I come back home.”
Inkoom played in the GPL for Asante Kotoko, between 2008 and 2009 before leaving for Basel, where his journey across Europe started.
