Ghana Premier league outfit Legon Cities have secured the signature of former Sunderland striker Asamoah Gyan.

According to reports, Gyan after having a meeting with Board Chairman of Legon Cities, Mr Richard Atikpo has agreed to join the club.

The 34-year-old, who once confessed his desire to play for Kotoko before he hangs his boots has in recent weeks been in discussion with the club over a move.

But the discussion hasn’t been as smooth as people thought it’ll be, with reports stating the move stalled due to the financial demands involved.

In a quick turn of events, the former Stade Rennes striker has reportedly agreed to join Legon Cities and will pocket $150,000 for joining the club.

Gyan is currently without a club after leaving Indian fold North East United in January 2020.

Asamoah Gyan has featured in 109 games for the Black Stars, the most by any player. He’s also the country’s all-time scorer with 51 goals.

The former Liberty Professionals striker has featured in multiple tournaments for the Black Stars, including the 2006 World Cup in Germany, 2010 World Cup in South Africa and 2014 World Cup in Brazil.

He is also the top African goalscorer in the history of the World Cup with six goals.
