Hearts signing Obua: I had West Ham offer

New Hearts signing David Obua has revealed he rejected an offer from West Ham United to move to Tynecastle.

"It is always the manager's influence which has a bearing on a player and I have worked with (Laszlo) Csaba for the past two years with Uganda," said Obua. "He is the person who has really made me who I am today. West Ham United and Chievo were interested in signing me, but Csaba is the reason I decided to come to Hearts."
