The former Accra Hearts of Oak playmaker, who joined Ismaily from Bucaspor in 2014, featured for the Egyptian giants 29 times during the 2014/2015 league season, scoring 10 goals and providing eight assists  to win four personal laurels during his  three-year spell in Egypt.

The talented midfielder, once featured for the local Black Stars at the age of 15 against Niger in 2008, when the local Black Stars qualifed for the first edition of the African Nations Championship.

Speaking to the Graphic Sports on Tuesday, the former Trabzonspor player said he believed his current profile at club level was impressive and pledged his readiness to play for the Black Stars.   

“It’s the dream of every great footballer to represent his country at a certain point in his playing career. I had a wonderful season with Ismaily and I believe it’s time I proved to the world how ready I am,” he stressed.

The 25-year-old star disclosed that he was currently in talks with other clubs from the Gulf region over a possible move out of Egypt but no deal had been secured so far as Ismaily were keen on keeping him for more years.

“I have received offers from clubs in the Gulf, who want to sign me but no deal has been finalised yet because Ismaily still want to keep me,” he said.
