Kayserispor have granted Ghanaian international Asamoah Gyan a compassionate leave as he attempts to resolve family issues.

Officials of the Turkish Super Lig side granted him permission to leave their winter training camp in Antalya.

The former Sunderland hitman will return to his home country of Ghana in an attempt to sort out the family problems which have plagued his season.

Gyan has allegedly filed for divorce from his wife, Gifty at the Divorce and Matrimonial Division of the High Court, Accra.

The Ghana captain is also demanding a DNA test on all three of his children to know if he is their biological father.

However, Gyan is expected to join Kayserispor’s camp before the end of the camp.

He is likely to meet up with the team in the city of Kayseri.
