Ayew to the Rescue of Cash-Strapped Ghana

Ghana vice-captain Andrew Ayew has offered to pay the travel costs for seven Black Stars so they can play in Saturday’s Africa Cup of Nations tie.

Ayew stepped in after Ghana’s Ministry of Youth and Sport said it will not pay for the travel of foreign-based players for the match against Rwanda in Accra.

The Ministry has asked the Ghana Football Association to field only locally-based players.

Ghana have already qualified for the finals and Rwanda have been eliminated.

That has led Ghana’s MOYS to believe its funds would be better spent elsewhere.

However, Ghana coach Avram Grant wants his best players to be available so they can use the match as preparation for a World Cup qualifier against Congo in October.

Ayew himself, who plays his football for English Premier League side West Ham, will miss the game because of a thigh problem.

Gyan move off

Meanwhile Ghana captain Asamoah Gyan’s proposed move to Championship club Reading on a season-long loan has fallen through.

The 30-year-old former Sunderland striker was poised to join the Royals from Chinese side Shanghai SIPG.

Reading confirmed to BBC that Gyan will not be joining the club, but would not comment on reports of him failing a medical.

Gyan scored 10 Premier League goals during a two-year spell with Sunderland from 2010 before moving to the UAE – BBC
