Ghana’s all time top scorer Asamoah Gyan has left the door open for Premier Soccer League (PSL) clubs.
Asamoah Gyan whose contract with Indian Super League club NorthEast United FC ended earlier this year is currently without a club and has opened his doors for South African clubs.
“I still feel strong, I still feel young. There is no day I have thought about retiring,” Gyan told Marawa Sports Worldwide on Metro FM.
“Definitely yes if a team from South Africa are interested and feel they need my services why not? We can negotiate and we can have a deal.
“Yes [I don’t come cheap but] it depends on the situation. I am a professional football player and I have to see a lot of things, I have to value a lot of things before making a move. But as I said, I feel strong, I still have fire inside me. Obviously I am not in my 20s but I feel I can prove myself once again.”
Asamoah Gyan also revealed that he was once approached by a South African club, but a move didn’t materialize because there was nothing concrete on the table.
“Yeah [I was approached by a South African team] but it wasn’t concrete. This agent thing like you are here, you are going there, but at the end of the day I don’t see anything concrete,” said Gyan.
“I like working with serious people. When somebody wants to make a move or when somebody wants to approach you, the person has to be serious.
“But I didn’t see any seriousness. It was just talks, talks, talks and I didn’t hear from anybody again. Because it didn’t go through I don’t want to mention the club but obviously yes it was a South African club.
“If it was a done deal that really happened then I would mention the club. It was just talks, talks and I didn’t see any paperwork, I didn’t see anything. That is why I don’t want to mention any clubs.”
With Asamoah Gyan open to a PSL switch, his longstanding dream of playing for Asante Kotoko might have to hold on.
“I’ve supported Kumasi Asante Kotoko since I was a kid, till now. I even said to myself that I had to play Kotoko, but I didn’t have the chance to play before traveling outside” he noted.
“I have said that I have to wear the red shirt before I call it a day. I want to finish my career at Kumasi Asante Kotoko”.
Asamoah Gyan’s next move could be the most vital move of his career as it could be his last career move. He has previously played in England, France, Italy, Turkey, United Arab Emirates (UAE), India, China and in Ghana.
