The right-back last represented the country in 2015 but believes he can earn a call-up soon with consistent performance at club level

Ghana defender Samuel Inkoom says he is hoping to hit top form with Bulgarian side FC Vereya after signing a four-month loan deal from Turkish side Antayalspor in a bid to make a return to the Black Stars.

The 27-year-old, who was part of Ghana's squad that made it to the 2010 Fifa World Cup quarter-finals, last played for the team at the 2015 Africa Cup of Nations in Equatorial Guinea.

''I believe that each coach has his game plan but I’m a Ghanaian who is really ready to help his country, so I'm hoping for the chance once more,'' Inkoom told Kasapa FM.

''I'm doing my best so whenever a new coach is appointed and sees me as a player perfect for his plans and gives me the opportunity to represent my country why not, I will accept the call-up.

"Ghanaians know the kind of player I am after my performances over the years. So what I need to do now is to start playing very well and regularly at my club side because that is the only thing to pave way for me. I am ready to help my new club achieve success and my country too,'' he added.

Inkoom boasts of 46 appearances with the Black Stars and has scored one goal. He made his debut for FC Vereya last weekend after coming on as a second-half substitute in their 4-0 defeat to Ludogorets.
