The Ghana FA (GFA) has slammed a 'false report' claiming that Asamoah Gyan has stormed out of Black Stars' 2017 Africa Cup of Nations camp on the night before their crunch clash with Uganda in a dispute with Andre Ayew over captaincy.

The GFA was forced to issue the midnight statement on Twitter after a website published the sensational news claiming Gyan has left the tournament in Gabon after the bust-up with the West Ham ace.

The report claimed that there was a heated exchange between the two before during the team's dinner on Monday night in Port Gentil.

However the GFA was quick with its response with a series of Tweets to assure Ghanaians that the news is untrue as the players are focused on defeating the Cranes in Tuesday's Group D match.

"Promptly ignore false report that Asamoah Gyan has left Ghana camp at Africa Cup of Nations in a dispute with Andre Ayew," the GFA statement on Twitter read.

"All players resting for match against Uganda after this evening's prayers. The Black Stars are united and focused."
