Inter Milan manager Walter Mazzarri has included Ghana U20 prospect Isaac Donkor in the Nerazzurris squad for the Uefa Europa League after leaving him out for the preliminary round squad. 

The 19-year-old enterprising center-back returns to the competition after marking his debut during the era of Andrea Stramaccioni two seasons ago.

Donkor is among four club-trained players who have been included in a final 29-man squad submitted to Uefa on Monday.

The Kumasi-born defender was left out of the initial squad for the competition after suffering an injury and could not get involved in pre-season for the Serie A giants.

However, after returning to full fitness, Mazzarri has added him to his assembly of defenders along with former Manchester United defender Nemanja Vidic.

Donkor, uncapped at any level, has expressed his readiness to play for the U20 side if he is handed a call-up.

    I’m sure he is good enough for the junior teams, this young man has been around for ages i’m surprised he hasn’t been given a chance yet. many more opportunities to come anyway
