Free agent Thomas Abbey rejects advances with Israeli outfit Hapoel Petah Tikvah

Former Accra Hearts of Oak captain,  Thomas Abbey has rejected an offer worth $30,000 plus other bonuses and incentives from Israeli Second Tier club Hapoel Petah Tikvah, who expressed keen interest in the player.

Abbey, who earlier confirmed his interest to join the club rejected the deal requesting more money.

The Israeli Leumit League side submitted a one season contract offer worth $30,000 plus a house and a car which was subject to the player passing medicals on arrival at the club.

The player’s representative with name Hans, after the offer deadline combated and rejected the offer tagging it too small for his client.

Sources close to the Israeli club indicated to that the player and his representative requested a whooping $65,000 which was immediately debunked by the club to bring an abrupt end to the not so productive negotiations between the two parties.

Abbey, who recently returned from an unsuccessful stint at Egyptian club Ismaily SC after his contract was prematurely terminated, is again in the market for a new challenge.

With the transfer window drawing to a closure at the end of the month, Abbey and his representatives will hope to land a staggering offer of choice to see the player back in action.
