The defender who has refused previous invitations is all set to represent Ghana after initial failed attempts to get him into the Black Stars team.

Salisu refused call-ups under former Coach CK Akonnor, went on to turn down invitation from Serbian Milovan Rajevac for the 2021 Africa Cup of Nations in Cameroon.

He further turned down a call-up for Ghana’s World Cup qualifier against Nigeria but now set to join after meeting with Ghana Football Association President Kurt Okraku.
