He is one of the stars Ghana will miss this weekend.
Newcastle United's Christian Atsu has also confirmed his exit after his club reported of his unavailability due to some injections he took after the game against Liverpool on Saturday.
Things are not looking good for Ghana ahead of the all-important 2018 world cup qualifier against the Cranes of Uganda in Kampala.
Appiah added, "We have players in this squad, who deserve to play".
Twenty-one players in camp who all trained Wednesday night at the Kasarani Stadium in Nairobi, are bubbling with confidence to undo the high-flying Cranes, and according to Coach Kwasi Appiah, the team will fight to the end.
The uganda coach told Kumasi-based Nhyira FM that they were noth bothered about the players Ghana would parade in Kampala, as all they want is victory over the Stars.
The Cranes, with seven points, are second in Group E behind seven-time African champions Egypt, who have two points more.
They now lie third in their group of four on five points - which is two behind second-placed Uganda and four behind group leaders Egypt.
But Fufa president Moses Magogo has continued to request the government to act and financially support the team in the crucial games remaining against Ghana and away to Congo Brazzaville.
"We will not underrate them if even with Gyan or no Gyan, the Ayews or no Ayews, we saw what some unknown Ghana players did against Congo in the last round of qualifiers".
