No, it is not possible.

libssh2 implements SFTP version 3 and it doesn't provide that information. If
libssh2 would implement a later SFTP version and the server you're
communicating with also does, then it would be possible... I believe for
example OpenSSH also only implement SFTP version 3.

See http://www.greenend.org.uk/rjk/2007/sftpversions.html for a great overview
of SFTP differences.
