"I am in a very good shape and that is showing in the matches I have played for my club so far this season.

"The natural thing for a player is to progress from the U-23 to the Black Stars as some of my colleagues have done.

"I hope that the authorities will also keep an eye on the Greek league so that our exploits in this part of the world too is noted.

"Until then I will keep on working hard as I have done in the past but I insist my target is to get back into the national team."
