English-born Ghanaian Callum Hudson-Odoi paid a courtesy call to the President of Ghana on Monday at his residence, according to the statement from the Jubilee House.
The President, Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo then urged the Minister of Youth and Sports to commence the process for the Chelsea star to switch nationality to represent the West African nation at the senior level.
Nana Addo’s statement reads “On Monday, 7th June 2021, Ghanaian-born Chelsea footballer, Callum Hudson-Odoi, paid a courtesy call on me at Jubilee House, the seat of our nation’s presidency.”
Hudson-Odoi visited President Nana Addo at the Jubilee House with his family members and the Minister of Youth and Sports, Mustapha Ussif.
“Amongst others, I urged the Minister for Youth and Sports to explore the possibility of having Callum switch nationality, and play for the Black Stars.”
He has been a long-term target of the Ghana Football Association to consider a nationality switch despite capping three times for England at the senior level.
