Chelsea forward Callum Hudson-Odoi on Monday paid a courtesy call on President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo at the Jubilee House.

He presented the President with a signed Chelsea jersey with his favorite number 20 at the back.

One of the topics which came up for discussion was a nationality switch.

Akufo-Addo urged the Minister for Youth and Sports, Mustapha Ussif to explore the possibility of having the Ghanaian native switch nationality, and play for the Black Stars.

He has already played three times for England, however, a change to FIFA’s eligibility rules means he can still switch to Ghana in 2022.

On Monday, the Chelsea youngster and his team paid a courtesy call on President Akufo-Addo at the Jubilee House.

In a Facebook post after the meeting, the President revealed that he has asked the Sports Minister to explore all possibilities of getting Hudson-Odoi to switch nationality to Ghana.

“On Monday, 7th June 2021, Ghanaian-born Chelsea footballer, Callum Hudson-Odoi, paid a courtesy call on me at Jubilee House, the seat of our nation’s presidency,” Akufo-Addo posted.

“Amongst others, I urged the Minister for Youth and Sports to explore the possibility of having Callum switch nationality, and play for the Black Stars.”

Meanwhile, the Chelsea star has been enjoying his time in Ghana and has been honoured by some Chelsea supporters in the country.
