The 22-year-old joined the top-flight club five years ago and has been mainly consigned to the junior team of Monaco but he has been named on the bench for Sunday afternoon's match.

After honing his career with the youth side, Monaco believe that Ayiah is now ready to play among the big boys of the club.

He could be play for Monaco's first team in today's match at Stade Louis II in Monaco which will mark his debut in Ligue 1.

Ayiah's performances with the senior team is what has forced the decision to promote him to the senior team.

He has provided five assists and scored two goals in 17 matches for AS Monaco's second side during the current season.

After a successful campaign in India with Black Starlets, the youngster from Ghana joined Monaco on a five-year-deal.
