Ghana striker Gyan's injury is not as bad as it was feared

Ghana striker Asamoah Gyan has been told his injury is not as bad as first feared.

The 22-year-old, who plays for Ligue 1 side Rennes, was taken off during Saturday's league game against Lorient.

A scan on the thigh injury on Tuesday showed that he had neither torn a muscle nor broken anything.

"I desperately want to play to help my club Rennes before the season ends, I don't think I will be out for long," Gyan had told BBC Sport after being taken off.

He has scored 13 goals so far this season and remains Ligue 1's third joint top scorer.

Gyan has overcome fitness problems this term after injuries plagued his first season at the club.
