GFA President Kurt Okraku has confirmed that six new players have agreed to play for the Black Stars of Ghana.

Ghana has been on the trail of a number of young Ghanaian players playing in Europe and elsewhere with the likes of Tariq Lamptey, Eddie Nketiah, Inaki Williams and Callum Hudson-Odoi all on the radar.

The German born trio of Stephan Ambrosius, Patrick Pfeffer and Ransford-Yeboah Konigsdorffer have all committed themselves to playing for Ghana and their nationality switches have been completed in time to play for Ghana at the 2022 FIFA World Cup in Qatar.
