The former Sunderland striker and three other key players, namely Andre Ayew, Jordan Ayew and Mubarak Wakaso were left out of the 21 man squad for the clash.

Anim Addo thinks his client is likely not going to continue with football after the Africa Cup of nation, but he will be the right person to confirm it.

Gyan had a troubled campaign at Kayserispor last term, where he struggled with fitness and form and was largely inactive for the club - scoring just once in nine appearances last term.

"It is likely, with these kinds of things he'll the best man to affirm it, and so I can’t say it on his behalf, but it’s likely. It’s likely, it’s a possibility."
