Ghana  coach  Kwesi Appiah says he will fly out to Milan to hold talks with retired Kevin-Prince Boateng over his international  future .

The AC Milan ace quit the Black Stars last November by explaining that physical demands of playing for both club and country at a high level are taking a toll on his health.

It was rumoured that the 24- year -old had clashed with former Ghana coach Goran Stevanovic.

Boateng's decision to step down from the national team came as shock after the Ghana FA  president  Kwesi Nyantakyi held talks with the player.

Appiah hopes he can persuade the mercurial midfielder to rescind his decision.

'It is been difficult talking to Boateng directly but I have succeeded in making some significant contacts,' Appiah told the Africa  Sports  Newspaper.

'I intend flying out to Milan pretty shortly to talk to him and to assure him of his importance to the team

Boateng, a former Germany youth international, was cleared by FIFA in the summer of 2010 and played at the World Cup finals the same year where he shone.
