Ghana ace Kwadwo Asamoah is sticking to his words of making a return to national duty in September after four years in the wilderness.
He has long indicated his desire to make a comeback since putting his fitness issues behind him, but never quite walks the talk.
Last month, he restated his ambition, this time, putting a timeline to it, and it appears there is no backing down on this one.
"I have made a promise to come back to the national team in September and I am sticking to that," Asamoah said in an interview with KweseESPN.
"I hope to stay fit and then that will happen because I always said I needed time away to deal with the injuries."
With an international return well and truly on the cards, and a change of clubs, the debate over where the utility man will be deployed is certain to become a thing once again.
While at Juventus , the Accra-born was largely played on the left side of defence. He began his career, though, as a midfielder, a position he is mostly seen in with the Black Stars.
"As a player I have proven I can be useful to a team in many ways, so it will be up to the boss to make that decision and then I will give off my best as I have always done," Asamoah, who recently completed a switch to Inter, remarked.
"[Inter] have signed me with a plan in mind and so it is up to the coach to implement that."
"I made this move because I needed a change, but not in terms of the country I play in," the former Liberty Professionals man said.
"The choice of Inter Milan is basically because it works well for my family and allows me to continue playing at a really high and competitive level."
