Ghana have secured Arsenal star Thomas Partey, Andre and Jordan Ayew for their 2021 Africa Cup of Nations qualifier against Sao Tome and Principe.

The high-profile trio look poised to pull out of the latest squad due to the Covid-19 travel restrictions that has seen several African sides without their key players in the current international break.
