Kevin-Prince Boateng has withdrawn from the Ghana squad to play South Africa in Johannesburg on Wednesday.

The Portsmouth midfielder's withdrawal is to enable him sort out his club future as he angles for a move away from the Championship side.

His absence leaves head coach Milovan Rajevac with 17 players for the game at the Soccer City Stadium tomorrow evening.

Rajevac has already replaced Dominic Adiyiah and John Mensah with Ransford Osei and Bright Addae as both, originally included in the 18-man squad had to pull out.

The match against the Bafana Bafana is the first game since the Black Stars went out in the quarter-final stages at the World Cup in South Africa.

Richard Kingson will captain Ghana in the absence of John Mensah for Wednesday’s international friendly.

The 32 year-old goalkeeper who kept the post for Ghana at the 2010 World Cup arrived in the team’s camp today as Milovan Rajevac rounded up preparations for the game against the 2010 World Cup host nation.
