Vice-captain of the Black Stars, Thomas Partey, has left the team’s camp to return to London after missing Friday night’s friendly against Brazil.

The Arsenal star is expected to also miss Ghana’s second friendly of this international window against Nicaragua in Spain next weekend.

Partey only returned from injury last weekend to play 78 minutes for Arsenal in their Premier League win against Brentford.

He was then invited for the Black Stars games against Brazil and Nicaragua but he will end up not playing in any of these two games.

The 29-year-old is expected back in London for scans on his knee which flared up before the Ghana- Brazil friendly last night

However, a member of the Black Stars medical team confirmed to Joy Sports his withdrawal was only precautionary and that the player should be fine for the against Nicaragua.

Ghana lost the game with a 3-0 score.
