United starlet Welbeck to play for Ghana?

Ghana's football association may try to lure Manchester United striker Danny Welbeck to represent them on the international stage. The 17-year-old Mancunian of Ghanian parentage made headlines this week when he netted a spectacular goal in United's 5-0 win over Stoke.

Welbeck has represented England at youth level but under FIFA guidelines, players who represent one country at junior level are allowed to switch to another country provided they are still under the age of 21, making him still eligible for the Black Stars.

And the Ghana Football Association (GFA) are hoping to persuade Welbeck to select them ahead of his country of birth. "The GFA president (Kwesi Nyantakyi) has been in constant talks with his family and the response is quite encouraging," spokesman Randy Abbey told GNA Sports.

"There is still much to be cleared with respect to the player's career development and gaining a regular place in the Manchester United first team. But we are very sure that when the time is due for the player to make a national team choice, it will be the Black Stars."
