Chris Hughton is in Ghana over the vacant Black Stars coaching job,

Former Norwich City manager, Chris Hughton is in Ghana ahead of talks to take over the vacant Black Stars coaching job.

The 63 year old coach is among a number of coaches listed as possible candidates to take over the managerial job following the sacking of Serbian coach Milovan Rajevac on January 26.

Hughton, who have also managed Brighton & Hove Albion, is of Ghanaian heritage through his father and is expected to have a meeting with the executive council of the Ghana Football Association.

Rajevac was relieved of his duties as the Black Stars head coach following Ghana’s abysmal performance and elimination in the ongoing Africa Cup of Nations tournament in Cameroon.

Borussia Dortmund assistant coach Otto Addo, Aston Villa youth coach George Boateng and former Cameroon assistant coach Ibrahim Tanko are said to be part of a number of coaches being considered for the vacant job.
