					Dede keen on Black Stars place

Dede wants to return to the Stars Ghana midfielder Andre Dede Ayew is keen on regaining his place in the Black Stars after eight months out of the side. 

The 18-year-old, son of legend Abedi Pele, was a member of the national team during the African Cup of Nations in January.

But he has not been called into the country's top national team since the qualifiers for the 2010 WOrld Cup started in May.

Ayew last week led the Black Satellites to qualify for the Africa U-20 Championship to be held in Rwanda next year but he wants to fight for his place in the senior national team.

Despite leading the U-20 national team, the France-based player is determined to regain his place in the Black Stars.

"I always want to play for the national teams. As the leader of the Under-20 team, I always want to play with my colleagues," Ayew said.

"I know I just want to play for the national team.

"Every player wants to play for the senior team. And I am no different. I just want to play well to earn my place.

"I don't think I have been demoted. I could have joined the squad for the South Africa friendly game but it's impossible because of my team.

"Things like that do happen. But I have to remain strong and be ready to serve my country every time that I am called to. "
