Rumour Mill: Boye linked with Barcelona move

Ghana defender John Boye has been linked with a move to Spanish giants Barcelona as a replacement for retired Carles Puyol.

This is according to reports in the French media, the centre-back, who has rejected a contract extension from Ligue 1 side Stade Rennes, is on the priority list of the Catalan giants.

Boye spent close to six months in the treatment room this term and managed only 10 appearances.

He arrived at the club for the 2008-2009 season but made his first team bow in 2010.

The 27-year-old made a total of 63 French Ligue 1 appearances. Boye could enhance his market value if he distinguishes himself at the 2014 FIFA World Cup finals.
