Hearts of Oak defender Mohammed Alhassan has been named in the Black Stars provisional squad for the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations.
The centre-back is part of nine defenders invited to begin preparation for the competition.
Alhassan who joined Hearts of Oak from WAFA has been one of the standout defenders in the ongoing NC Special Cup where he has featured in all matches for his Club.
Coach Kwesi Appiah meanwhile is expected to officially release his squad by the end of the day.
Already Asamoah Gyan has exempted himself from the squad after he was relieved off his captaincy duties.
