Iraqi first division side Erbil Sports Club have signed Hearts of Oak defender Nuru Sulley on loan for a season ahead of the coming season with the option to sign him permanently at the end of the 2021/2022 season.
Despite announcing the veteran defender’s signing, the Ghana Premier League side claim that Sulley is still their player and has not transferred him to a club.
The 29-year-old previously played in Iraq for Al Mina’a SC and Naft Al-Basra in 2019.
Sulley also had stints in Libya where he played for Al Ittihad Tripoli and Al-Nasr Benghazi before moving to Turkey to join Alanyaspor, where he spent four years.
The center-back played an important role for Hearts when they won the Ghana Premier League in 16 appearances last season.
Sulley will be the second Ghanaian player to join Erbil after former AshantiGold SC striker and Black Stars B captain Shafiu Mumuni.
