Kevin Boateng has agreed to rejoin the Black Stars of Ghana.

Ghana Football Association president Kwesi Nyantakyi has announced the return of Kevin-Prince Boateng to the Black Stars.

Boateng announced his decision earlier this week after ending his self-imposed exile stating he is ready for international football.

The 24-year old AC Milan retired in November 2011 claiming his body could not cope with club and international football.
 "KP Boateng had confirmed to the coach and my good self that he was coming back to play," Nyantakyi said on SuperSport's Soccer Africa programme.

"Let me confirm that before Kwesi Appiah selected his team for the Sudan game (in Kumasi) Kevin had told the coach and me that he was available for that game.

"Unfortunately, a week before that game, he picked up an injury during training with AC Milan but he told us that he would participate in the team's games in June."

Boateng, a 2010 FIFA World Cup star, will be available for selection in September this year when the team play Zambia at home in a final 2014 World Cup qualifier.
