Black Stars coach Charles Kwabla Akonnor has held talks with Crystal Palace player Jeffrey Schlupp as part of his European tour.

Akonnor met with Schlupp on Monday, a day after meeting Ayew brothers.

The 45-year-old is on a European tour to hold discussions with current players and potential new additions to the Black Stars, having assumed duty as new head coach last month.

Following this meeting, it wouldn't be a surprise if Schlupp makes a return to the senior national team.

The 27-year-old has been absent from national duty since March 2019 when he featured in an international friendly against Mauritania in Accra.

Schlupp has 14 caps for the Blak Stars since his debut in 2014.

Akonnor replaced James Kwasi Appiah, whose contract expired at the end of 2019.

His first match as Black Stars coach will be in March.
