Grant wants Partey for Ghana


Ghana boss Avram Grant will meet with Atletico Madrid midfielder Thomas Partey as he looks to draft him into the Black Stars set up.

Partey was dropped from Ghana’s U-20 side for the 2013 World Youth Championship in Turkey but has  gone to build a reasonably good stock after a season on loan at Almeria and currently with Atletico Madrid for whom he has been a useful addition especially off the bench.

GFA president Kwesi Nyantekyie says Grant will meet with Partey and Atletico Madrid’s Inaki Williams who has been capped for Spain at junior level after his breakthrough season with Atletico Bilbao.

“Avram Grant will meet Thomas Partey and Inaki Williams in his European tour to hold meetings with them over the possibility of playing for Ghana” Nyantakyi said, “We have contacts with them already and have had initial talks with them and we are very hopeful of them getting call ups soon.”

Partey was a 74th minute subtitute for Atletico Madrid as they beat Atletico Madrid 2-0 to reach the champions league semi finals.
