Defender Musah Nuhu has left the Black Stars camp in Dubai after sustaining an injury.
The centre-back will not be part of Ghana’s Africa Cup of Nations campaign in Egypt.
Nuhu was one of the debutants in the Black Stars team ahead of the Cup of Nations but has been struck with an unexpected injury which automatically rules him out of the competition.
Coach Kwesi Appiah will now have to settle on John Boye, Jonathan Mensah, Kassim Nuhu, Joseph Aidoo and Mohammed Alhassan as his only four centre-backs available as he prepares to name his final 23 for the competition.
Ghana will take on Nambia in a pre-tournament friendly where all 28 players available are expected to partake to enable Kwesi Appiah settle on his final selection.
