Ghana coach Claude Le Roy has named the former Dutch under-20 international Quincy Owusu-Abeyie in his preliminary squad for the Nations Cup.

The youngster has applied to Fifa for a change of nationality, but the move has not yet been confirmed by football's world governing body.

Owusu-Abeiye started his career at Arsenal and then moved to Spartak Moscow.

He has been on loan at Celta Vigo in Spain since September.

He is one of 40 players named by Le Roy in the initial line up for the hosts.

The French coach has picked 11 uncapped players, including English-born Gillingham striker Chris Dickson.

Dickson, who has Ghanaian and Jamaican heritage, caught the eye of Leroy with his seven goals in England's League One (third division) this season, on loan from Charlton Athletic.

The squad will be cut down to the regulation 23 by January 10th.

Ghana kick off the tournament against Guinea in Accra on January 20th.

They also meet Namibia and Morocco.
