Jordan Ayew inists he will not be available for selection when the Black Stars assemble at the Garden City for a crucial World Up qualifier with Sudan next weekend.

Ayew, who called time on his playing time with the Black Stars late last month has played himself out of the squad despite the Ghana Football Association (GFA) ordering otherwise.

GNA Sports can confirm that the player will be willing to present himself for selection after the Sudan game which Ghana must win to breath a measure of life into the World Cup campaign.

In a one page letter to the GFA in response to the player’s quest for a temporary break, Jordan said ‘I appreciate your swift reaction to my letter and the suggestion implied in you’r letter that I am still relevant for the Black Stars assignment.

“I will therefore definitely and certainly make myself available  for future Black Stars assignment, but not immediately.”

The player who was failed to make the cut in the 25-man provisional squad for the 2013 African Cup of Nations in Douth Africa where the Stars returned home empty handed insisted his decision to take time off was only temporary.

“My decision to withdraw my services for the senior national team is only temporary. I accept you’r recommendation to me to reconsider my decision and make myself available for future Black Stars assignment.”

He described the GFA’s response as being consistent with the subject matter oh his earlier decision for a breather.
