Marseille duo of Dede and Jordan Ayew have confirmed their preparedness to officially communicate their return to international duties to the Ghana Football Association (GFA) in the coming days, Ghana biggest newspaper the Daily Graphic has reported.
This follows a request by the GFA that it be officially notified in writing by the Ayews of their return after their decision to be excused from national duties generated an intense public debate, requiring the intervention of President John Mahama and Otumfuo Osei Tutu II.
Though the specific day which the letter is expected to be delivered has not been made known, a close source to the players told the Graphic Sports that it was certain it would be done soon.
The source said the players would definitely fulfill the request by the football governing body, despite an entrenched posture the players assumed earlier.
When the letter is delivered on time, sons of the legendary Abedi Pele could get their first international call-up in more than five months as Coach Kwasi Appiah prepares to name his final squad for the Black Stars last game against Zambia.
The Ayew brothers could play in the Stars, alongside their close pal, Kevin-Prince Boateng, who also has up to tomorrow to declare himself eligible to play for the nation again, according to GHANAsoccernet.com.
Boateng similarly resigned from the senior national team after his impressive debut for Ghana at the 2010 World Cup in South Africa, but after persuasions from family and friends, the AC Milan enforcer rescinded his decision last month.
Their presence is expected to present Coach Appiah with several midfield options as he attempts to make history as the first Ghanaian coach to qualify the national team to the Mundial.
