Born in Wandsworth in London to Ghanaian parents, Hudson-Odoi who has represented the Three Lions is still eligible to play for Ghana at the international level.

Asked about the possibility of playing for Ghana, Hudson-Odoi said it is a good option but he is still thinking through to make the decision.

“Hopefully, once I start playing games here, maybe Gareth [Southgate] or Ghana will come. It’s a nice position to be in and hopefully, sooner or later we will know,” the winger who spent last season on loan at Bayer Leverkusen added.

Ghana already has been able to snatch Tariq Lamptey of Brighton and Inaki Williams of Athletic Club who were eligible to represent England and Spain respectively.

The West African country was eager to land Arsenal forward Eddie Nketiah but the youngster was handed debut call-up to England senior team by Gary Southgate during the recent international break.
