Hope for Ghana as Brighton’s Lamptey admits he is yet to decide on his international future

Brighton and Hove Albion full-back Tariq Lamptey is yet to decide which country he will represent at international level.

The 19-year-old has been one of the most consistent players in the Brighton side and despite representing England at junior levels, the player can represent Ghana too with their Football Association having publicly expressed their aim to convince him to switch.

"No. I'm still young so I'm just looking forward to the next game which is Manchester United and keep playing as well as possible. Whatever comes next, we'll see," the player is quoted by The Sun prior to their loss to Man United.

Asked whether the intense competition in his position for England would convince him to play for Ghana, Lamptey replied: "No.

"At the moment I'm just focused on Brighton and playing as many games as possible, keep training as hard as possible, keep playing well and keep a consistent level.

"At the end of the day, the harder I work and the more games I get in are the most important things for my development. What happens in the future on the international side, we'll have to wait and see?”

Having been at Brighton on a loan deal, the player who has represented England at under-18, under-19 and under-20 levels, made a permanent move to the club at the start of the year from Chelsea, signing a three and a half year deal.
