Ghana's football authorities have named Serbian Milovan Rajevac as their new coach.

The 52-year-old has yet to sign a contract, but BBC Sport understands that he will travel to Ghana next week to sign a two-year deal.

"We have finally reached an agreement with this eastern European coach to lead the Black Stars," Ghana Football Association vice-president Fred Pappoe told BBC Sport.

"We have offered him a two-year contract which will end in August 2010."

Rajevac will takes over from Frenchman Claude Le Roy, who resigned in May, three months after leading Ghana to a third place finish at the Africa Cup of Nations.

Sellas Tetteh has been caretaker coach of the Black Stars in the meantime, taking them to the top of their 2010 World Cup qualifying group, ahead of Libya on goal difference.

Rajevac is currently in charge of Serbian club FK Borak, who finished fourth in the league last season.

He will lead FK Borak in a Uefa Cup second qualifying round game against Lokomotiv Sofia of Bulgaria on Thursday.

Rajevac's first assignment with the Black Stars will be a friendly against Tanzania in Arusha 20 August.

His first competitive game is a 2010 World Cup qualifier away to Libya on 5 September.
