Asante Kotoko center-back, Abdul Ismail Ganiu has rejoined his teammates ahead of crunch fixture against Ashanti Gold on Sunday.
Ganiu was due to miss the Ashanti Derby on the account of a scheduled trip with the Black Stars to Rabat to play Morocco in an International Friendly on June 8.
Kotoko are chasing their 25th league title and at the moment, they sit behind arch-rivals Hearts of Oak by two points on the table with seven matches left to end the season.
Hence, Black Stars head coach, Charles Kwabla Akonnor has released Ganiu for the upcoming game.
Ismail Ganiu has four goals thus far this season and has been a pillar at the back for the Porcupines.
However, Kotoko’s first choice goalkeeper, Razak Abalora is still with the Black Stars and won’t be available for the derby.
Ganiu will rejoin the Senior National Team right after the game to make the trip to the North African country.
