Grejohn Kyei Celebrating His Goal With His Team MatesGrejohn Kyei

France youth international Grejohn Kyei says he won’t turn down the opportunity to play for the Black Stars if contacted by the Ghana Football Association.

The 21-year-old Stade de Reims striker was born in France to Ghanaian parents.

His last visit to his parents’ country was more than a decade ago, but the budding says he would consider playing for the West African giants.

“I was born in France but my parents are from Ghana, meaning I could only pledge my allegiance to one country,” Kyei told BBC Sport.

“I know everything in France because I was born here, but no one [from the Ghana Football Association] has contacted me.

“But in the future, if Ghana do call me then I have to look at that international option because you can’t close doors.

“I know for sure that my parents will be excited if it happens, right now I can only give my best to what is in front of me [France and Reims].”

Kyei sprained his right ankle last month and the doctors ruled him out of action for eight weeks.
