Ghana defender Boye not keen on Rennes exit

Defender John Boye says he is not keen on leaving Stade Rennes

By Akyereko Frimpong Manson

Ghana center-half John Boye says he is happy at French Ligue 1 side Stade Rennes and is in no rush to leave the club.

Several stellar European clubs including English Premier side West Ham United and German Bundesliga side Wolfsburg have earmarked the 25-year-old for a January move.

Marseille boss Elie Baup is also reportedly following the exploits of the former Heart of Lions stalwart defender and is likely to sign him in January to strengthen his defence.

But Boye who has spent four seasons at the Stade de la Route de Lorient says he would only leave Rennes when the right offer arrives.

“I’m okay here but if I get good offer why not, I don’t want to rush because I’m okay here,” Boye told Ghanasoccernet.com in an exclusive interview.

Boye is expected to play a crucial role in Ghana’s campaign at January’s Nations Cup in South Africa.
