Benson starts Rennes trials

By gfa

Ghanaian teenage prodigy Ekow Benson has started trials with French side Rennes.

The 17-year-old, who plays for the local side Tema Youth, was invited by the Ligue 1 side just five days after making his debut for the Black Stars.

Rennes are thought to be keen to arrange a match behind closed doors at some point during Benson's two-week stay.

Benson was one of five debutantes who played in Ghana's 1-0 loss to Brazil in a friendly in Stockholm.

Ghana coach Claude Le Roy invited the talented midfielder for the Stockholm game after spotting him during a local league match.
