The Msimbazi Street Boys shot-stopper is hoping to land a recall to the national team following Avram Grant's exit

Simba FC goalkeeper Daniel Agyei has revealed his readiness to help Ghana under Black Stars New coach Kwesi Appiah.

The 27-year-old, who joined the Tanzanian giants four months ago after his incredible performance in the 2015 Caf Confederations Cup with Medeama, was overlooked by Avram Grant.

He has been one of the top performers in Tanzania, with his side leading the league log.

"It's always an honour to play for the national team. I am also hopeful that I can get the chance to stake a claim in the team," Agyei was quoted as saying by Herosportsgh.com.

"Kwesi Appiah is a good coach and we are praying for him to succeed. His return represents a fresh opportunity for all players.

"We just have to do our best at our club level and leave the rest to coach Appiah. So far, it's been great here in Tanzania and for those who have been monitoring my performance, they won't be surprised if a chance to join the national team again avails itself."

"It's one chance at a time. I have been with the national team before and so having the opportunity to return won't be difficult for me since I will easily merge with the current players around," he added.

Agyei, who last played for the Black Stars in 2013, was part of the Ghana U20 side that won the 2009 World Youth Championship in Egypt alongside Andre Ayew, Agyemang Badu and Dominic Adiyiah.

The Black Stars will begin another era under Kwesi Appiah with a friendly against Mexico and United States on June 28 and July 1 respectively.
