With some key players away on holiday following their participation in the 2014 World Cup, Borussia Dortmund manager Jurgen Klopp is looking at Ghanaian pair Evans Owusu Nyarko and Joseph Claude-Gyau in his first team set up.

The duo have consistently been fielded in pre-season warm-up friendlies and they have overly impressed with attacker Gyau particularly embossing his pacey and artistic play on the flanks.

In Dortmund’s 4-3 win over Heidenheim on Sunday afternoon, the American-born was in delightful shape as he scored a classy finish in the 86th minute, his goal proving to be the match-winner.

Nyarko, who played with Dortmund’s second string side last season after joining them from a third-tier side has been with first team since the commencement of pre-season and has started most of the games playing alongside pedigree first team players like Subotic and Aubameyang.

Gyau, grandson of Ghana legend Agyeman Gyau, signed for Dortmund after ending his spell with TSG Hoffenheim and has immediately gone into the first team squad.
