Rennes coach Philippe Montanier has hinted that John Boye could be handed a started role in Wednesdayâ€™s Coupe de France round 16 tie against Auxerre away.
The centre-back could step in for CÃ©dric Hountondji due to fatigue.
â€œIt is a possibility as CÃ©dric Hountondji has played a lot of games and getting tired," Montanier replied when asked about Boyeâ€™s availability.
He was an unused substitute in last Saturdayâ€™s 3-1 defeat at Ajaccio.
Boye has been battling injuries since September last year after captaining Ghana in a 3-1 friendly defeat to Japan.
His return will be a massive boost for Black Stars coach Kwesi Appiah ahead of naming his World Cup squad in three months time.
