Daniel Amartey, Andre Ayew and Jordan Ayew are set to report late for the Black Stars preparations for the upcoming Africa Cup of Nations in Gabon.

The England-based trio will be in action for their various clubs on New Year’s Eve, and that will mean a delay in their arrival for the Black Stars’ camping in UAE.

Teams in England are given no break during the festive period, with the Black Stars trio scheduled to play their last club games before joining their colleagues in the national team.

Aston Villa manager, Steve Bruce confirmed that the GFA had permitted Jordan Ayew to delay his arrival for camp.

''We’ve got permission from Ghana for Jordan Ayew to play and we’re waiting on Ivory Coast for Kodjia,” he said.

''We’re hoping they see sense so he can play the game and then report. They have a training camp for a week so I don’t see why he can’t play the game and then report to them.''

January 2 will be a very busy day for all English clubs with Andre Ayew’s West Ham scheduled to play against Manchester United while Daniel Amartey’s Leicester also face Middlesbrough. Championship side Aston Villa will also be facing Cardiff City on the same day.
