The 37-year-old is currently a free agent after leaving Hearts of Oak at the expiration of his contract last season.

Muntari signed a six-month deal with the Phobians, winning two trophies during his short stint with the club.

He won this year’s President Cup against Asante Kotoko and also helped the team defend the MTN FA Cup title last season.

GhanaCNN.com understands that Hearts of Oak is ready to offer the former Inter Milan midfielder a new contract ahead of the season.

However, the deal has stalled because of Muntari’s interest in joining arch-rivals Asante Kotoko ahead of the team’s CAF Champions League campaign.

Muntari has already contacted Asante Kotoko on the possibility of joining the club next season.

A meeting has been held between the player and Asante Kotoko with Muntari laying down his conditions before joining the club.
