Guinea Football Federation (Feguifoot) has revealed that Ibrahim Cissé, 24, Amadou Diawara, 20, and Abdoulaye Toure, 24, have pledged allegiances to the national team.

Diawara, who has been playing for Seria A giants in Italy since 2014, had caught the eyes of the European country's youth selectors, while Toure, who was born in France, has played for the European country's youth teams.

Lastly, Ibrahima Cissé of English side Fulham has also pledged his senior future to Guinea according to Feguifoot's vice-president Amadou Diaby.

"The federation president Antonio Souaré has done an excellent job at this level [to get all three] and we are sure to count on them from the next international dates," Diaby said on BBC.

"We could have had them all during these Fifa dates but it was the new coach (Paul Put) who made his selections and we respect that."

The three midfielders are expected to be included in the next Guinea squad by new national team head Paul Put, who was in charge of his first game in charge ended in a 2-0 friendly defeat against Mauritania in Nouakchott last weekend
