Hearts midfielder Arnaud Djoum named in Cameroon squad for Africa Cup of Nations as Tynecastle future hangs in balance


ARNAUD DJOUM has been named in Cameroon’s final squad for the Africa Cup of Nations – as the Hearts star weighs up his future at club level.

The 30-year-old made the grade as Indomitable Lions boss Clarence Seedorf cut his initial 29-man preliminary group down to 23 for the showpiece in Egypt.

Cameroon are now in the midst of a training camp in the scorching heat of Doha, continuing their thorough preparations following a six-day stint using Real Madrid’s facilities on the outskirts of the Spanish capital.

Cameroon are seeking to retain the trophy, with Djoum having helped them to glory in 2017 under Belgian coach Hugo Broos.

Seedorf’s side have been placed in Group F alongside Ghana, Benin and Guinea-Bissau.

While his focus is on international matters, the former Anderlecht, Roda JC and Lech Poznan ace has a big decision to make in the coming weeks, with Djoum’s contract at Hearts set to expire this summer.
