Albert Adomah has been included in Ghana’s provisional 26-man squad for the 2013 Africa Cup of Nations in South Africa.
The winger has been in impressive form in recent weeks, scoring the winning goal in last Saturday’s 3-2 against Sheffield Wednesday from a late free kick.
Adomah, who turned 24 yesterday, has made three appearances for the Black Stars including his debut last year in a 1-0 defeat to Brazil at Craven Cottage.
The Ghana squad will head to a training camp in United Arab Emirates and play friendlies against Tunisia and Egypt before the final 23 names are confirmed.
The camp will run from January 4th until January 16th, while the tournament itself starts three days later.
If Adomah and his team-mates reach the final, he could miss up to six weeks of domestic action, which Derek McInnes admitted would be a big loss.
The City boss told bcfc.co.uk
: “We’re delighted for Albert and it’s a great opportunity for him to showcase his talents.
“I remember at a similar time last year we were pleased that he wasn’t involved from a selfish point of view, but it’s obviously a major event and for him to experience that can only be good for his development.
“He’s such an important player for us as everyone knows, so to have him missing for a few games will be a real shame.”
