Ghana midfielders Andre Ayew and Jordan Ayew were not present on Monday when their French club Marseille started their pre-season training.
The duo was expected to have joined the club’s first day of the season having ended their summer holidays in Accra on Friday.
Their absence coincided with Marseille’s announcement of the departure of coach Didier Deschamps who left the club by mutual consent.
Andre’s absence could spark fresh rumours about his possible exit from the club.
Rumours have linked the 22-year-old with moves to some of Europe’s top clubs, especially after he recently changed agent.
It was thought the move could spark him leaving the club before pre-season but he left Accra on Friday night to ensure he is fit and sound for the rigorous pre-season sessions.
