Cape Town - Ghana coach Avram Grant insists he will see out his two-year contact with the Ghana Football Association after reports suggested he is being courted by a host of clubs in Europe and Africa.

The former Chelsea boss is reportedly wanted by the South African Football Association as a technical director to head coach Shakes Mashaba, while various clubs in England have also been tipped with an interest in his services.

However, the 60-year-old, who led the Ghana to the silver medal in the recently concluded 2015 African Cup of Nations, insists he will remain with the Black Stars for as long as they want him.

"I am going to see out my two-year contract with the Ghana FA and nothing more. I have enjoyed my stay with the national team and I want to continue to build on that," Grant told Football411.

"I am gradually building a team that will win trophies and this is just the beginning of it so I have nowhere to go, I am ok with the job I have as the coach of Ghana and I will stay even longer if the FA wants me to after my contract."

The Israeli is, however, unaware of any interest from South Africa, adding: "I can’t speak to any club or a country when I have a two-year contract with the Ghana FA, my representatives and I have not spoken to any country or club I am fully focused with the Ghana job."
