Hammers want Ayew to miss US trip

andre-ayew-west-ham_3766957West Ham have asked the Ghana FA not to include Andre Ayew in the squad for the upcoming friendlies against Mexico and USA scheduled for June 28 and July 1.

With the two friendly matches taking players outside the FIFA dates for international matches, West Ham want their player to rest ahead of pre-season training.

“We have received letters from the clubs of Andre Ayew, Jordan Ayew and Daniel Amartey asking us to exclude them for the friendlies against Mexico and USA,” Ghana FA spokesman, Ibrahim Sannie, said when asked about reports that the players opted out of the two matches.

The Black Stars will face Mexico at the Houston Dynamo Stadium before locking horns with USA three days later at the Pratt & Whitney Stadium in East Hartford, Connecticut.
