Ghanaian midfielder Annan Deodatus claims he has turned down several advances to switch nationality to play for Thailand Under-20 side.

Officials of the Thai Federation are believed to have been impressed with the performance of the 18-year-old who plays for Airforce United.

The former Power Lines enforcer joined United at the beginning of the season after he helped Police United gain promotion to the Thai top-flight in 2009.

He claims he has turned down numerous overtures to represent the Asian country at the international stage.

“Some top officials of the Thailand Football Association have spoken to me severely for me to play for them,” Deodatus said

“They have granted me interviews on some television stations but I told them I was rather interested in representing my nation.

“It is just unfortunate that we have not had the opportunity to be assessed. All that I always ask for is to be given just a single chance.

“The level of football has gone high and so I will urge the authorities to extend their search to this country,”
