Chelsea midfielder Ziyech and Halihodzic holds talks - via Kharja

Chelsea midfielder Hakim Ziyech isn't ruling out making himself available for Morocco.

Ziyech was frozen out of the Africa Cup of Nations squad by coach Vahid Halihodzic, but Al Mountakhab says the tension between the pair is easing.

Morocco have their World Cup playoff coming up and the pair have been speaking via a third party.

Former Morocco international Houssine Kharja is behind the talks with the hope of Ziyech being part of the squad for their clash with DR Congo.

The winner of the playoff will qualify for Qatar 2022.
