Southampton defender Mohammed Salisu has been spotted playing football with friends in Madina while on vacation in Ghana.

The young centre-back has returned home after finishing the 2021-22 Premier League season with the most tackles.

And he decided to play with friends at the Madina Astroturf Park on Monday, with a short video of him in action went viral on social media.

Salisu was not called up for the Black Stars' 2023 Africa Cup of Nations qualifiers and four-nation tournament in Japan earlier this month.

After meeting with Ghana Football Association (GFA) president Kurt Okraku in May, Ghanaians expected Salisu to be included in the squad.

But coach Otto Addo named a 33-man squad without the central defender who claimed in the past that he is not to be ready for international football.

Salisu is reportedly willing to make a U-turn and accept a future call-up to Ghana's national team.

The 23-year-old is currently one of the best young players in Europe, having made an impressive start to the season at Southampton.

He has taken the Premier League by storm after starring in matches against Manchester United, Arsenal, Manchester City and recently Liverpool.
