Bristol City winger Albert Adomah wants to represent Ghana at the 2014 World Cup.

The 23-year-old, City's player of the year this season, has caught the eye of Ghana coach Goran Stevanovic and the African side's assistant manager Kwasi Appiah made overtures to Adomah through a third party earlier this month, persuading him to declare himself for Ghana ahead of England.

Adomah, who last week signed a new three-year contract at Ashton Gate, told the Evening Post: "My mum and Dad and most of my family are from Ghana, so this feels like the right thing to do. I was born and raised in this country, but I have very close ties with Ghana and this is not just me using a loophole to play international football."

He added: "For me, it's not a matter of choosing Ghana over England. I have dual nationality and passports for both countries. In the end, it was not a difficult decision to make.

"They sounded me out by speaking to people in this country who knew me.

"I then had a call from Kwasi Appiah asking me if I would consider making myself available to play for Ghana."
