President Nana Akuffo-Addo has urged the Sports Minister to explore the possibility of Callum Hudson-Odoi switching nationality to play for the Black Stars.

The Chelsea star has been in Ghana since last week to enjoy part of his summer holidays.

In the early hours of Monday, the player who recently won the UEFA Champion’s League paid a courtesy on the President at the Jubilee House.

The Blues winger presented the President with an autographed Chelsea jersey.

In a Facebook post, President Akufo-Addo said, “Amongst others, I urged the Minister for Youth and Sports to explore the possibility of having Callum switch nationality and play for the Black Stars.”

The winger, who’s capped three times by England, is still eligible to switch to Ghana after the eligibility rules were revised by FIFA.

The rule states that “Players can now switch national teams provided they are eligible to represent them as long as they have played no more than three matches (including friendlies), none of the matches were in the final tournament of the FIFA World Cup or confederation competition, and they all happened before the player turned 21.”

Callum Hudson-Odoi falls under this bracket as he is eligible for Ghana because of his dad, Bismark Odoi who played for Hearts of Oak.

Despite playing for England’s U16, U17, U18, U19, U21 and senior teams, Hudson-Odoi addressed Chelsea fans in Ghana at Alisa Hotel on Sunday and hinted at a possible switch in future.

“So it was the thing obviously choosing Ghana or England, and at the end of the day I said I always had the right people around me who always advise me – what’s right, what’s wrong.

“England came, and I said yeah, let me go and play for my country. But I said Ghana is my home as well, so we’ll see, we’ll see. You’ll never know, so,” he said whilst giggling,” he said.

The player was present at the derby between Great Olympics and Hearts of Oak at the Accra Sports stadium on Sunday.

Hudson-Odoi was part of the Chelsea team to win the Champions League. He’s the youngest player to ever win both the Champions League and Europa League.
