After reportedly arriving in the country on Sunday evening, the Serbian coach, who was previously at the helm of the Ghana national team between August 2008 and November 2010, is understood to be set to sign a two-year, performance-based contract after meeting with GFA officials and the country's minister of sport, Mustapha Ussif, on Monday. 

During his first spell in charge of the west African side, the 67-year-old led the Black Stars to the quarter-finals of the 2010 FIFA World Cup in South Africa, where they were eventually beaten by Uruguay in a penalty shootout.
