The father of the Arsenal attacker has reacted to claims that he's not willing to play for the West African nation.
Edward Nketiah snr. says news circulating in the media that his son is not ready to represent Ghana at moment are 'made up'.
An unknown Vincent Owusu Appiah described himself as an uncle of the 21-year-old in an interview with Kumasi-based radio station Wontumi FM.
He said in the interview that the father of the player is not ready to allow his son to feature for Ghana at any level.
Father of Eddie Nketiah distanced himself from the statements made by the so-called uncle in an exclusive interview with Ghanaian Journalist Saddick Adams.
He stated emphatically that he doesn't know anyone called Vincent Owusu Appiah who belongs to his family.
Nketiah was born to Ghanaian parents in Lewisham, a suburb of London in England.
In 2008, he was enrolled to Chelsea youth team after a successful trial but released by the one-time UEFA Champions League winners in 2015.
The budding talented forward was picked by Arsenal after two weeks of his release from the Chelsea youth team.
He rose to the fame from the Arsenal youth ranks with his scoring prowess which earned him a call-up to the England U18 side.
Nketiah has featured for England at the U18, U19, U20 and U21 level but still eligible to represent Ghana.
He is yet to decide on his future either to play for England or Ghana at the senior level
