"It can't be true. We have not released any list yet. I also saw it in the media. All I can say is that list is not coming from the technical team of the Black Stars," he is reported to have said by GHANAsoccernet.com.

Avram Grant is yet to name his final 23-man squad for the Africa Cup of Nations in Gabon, with the official announcement expected to come on December 31.

Ghana’s contingent will travel to the UAE for their final preparations before moving to Gabon for the tournament. The Black Stars will be based in Port Gentil where they face Egypt, Uganda and Mali group B.
