Are Hearts making another transfer mistake by letting Inusah Musah out the door?

Inusah Musah’s contract situation with Accra Hearts of Oak is much in the air and that will seriously worry the club who wouldn’t want to experience the departure of certain key players as was the case last season.
Inusah Musah according to reports in the Ghanaian media has stopped training with the club citing expiration of his contract as the reason behind his action and would only return to training if the club is able to meet his demands.
The defender is said to have already rejected an offer furnished him by the club and is asking for an improved offer which the club isn’t ready to meet. With the entrenched positions taken by both parties, it can only mean that the bromance between Inusah Musah and Accra Hearts of Oak is all but ended.
Musah joined the Phobians in the 2014/15 season but greatly announced his presence in the 2015/16 season in Hearts’ 2-1 loss to Kumasi Asante Kotoko at the Accra Sports Stadium.  He was the club’s best performer on the day and crowned it with a beautiful headed goal in between Dauda Mohammed’ s two goals that won the day for the Porcupine Warriors. Not only did the former Mighty Jets stalwart win over the hearts of Hearts technical team but also became a fan’s favourite thereafter.
His development may have stagnated a bit due to injury but when fit, there aren’t many more exciting centre-backs in the Ghanaian top-flight than him. Inusah Musah is a clever player. He tries to do better and has done better. He is an exceptional engine, always ready to execute his duties efficiently and effectively. He runs, his movements is great, he’s brave and exceptionally humble. 
Aggressive and surprisingly rugged, Musah’s resolve is matched by his acute sensibility in defensive situations. His awareness of when to close down and strip the ball from opponents is impressive, as his speed in covering ground to instigate his team’s pressing. 
He’s always searching for a forward pass to open up an opponent. He’s strong and good in the air, making him a capable all-rounder for his position. He excellently combines sound defending with forward raids, Musah ticks all boxes.
It came as no surprise to many when he was adjudged the best defender in Ghanaian top-flight league two seasons ago, pipping Asante Kotoko’s Amos Frimpong to the award and surprisingly with fewer games played and earned a call up into the Black Stars ahead of CAN 2017 but failed to make a cap.
His cool demeanour and spiky personality ensured he rose to become the skipper of the Hearts team where he brought his leadership quality to good use.
With uncertainties surrounding Inusah Musah’s contract extension, fans of the club are already questioning his loyalty to the club but how can a player be loyal to a club when a club interested in the player, have unlimited money at their disposal to double his wages with the mother club unwilling to do same?
With the availability of Benjamin Agyare and versatile players Robert Addo, Christopher Bonney and Richard Akrofi, the club won’t find it extremely difficult filling the void likely to be left by Inusah Musah.
In the club’s quest to return to winning ways, winning every trophy on sight as was the case in the early and mid- millennium, will it be prudent for the club let go of Inusah Musah considering his quality as a player and how important he could be in helping the Phobians to realise their dream of restoring the lost glory?
