The winger has become the latest addition to the Army Men after signing a two-and-half-year deal
Ghana international Edwin Gyasi has joined Bulgarian giants CSKA Sofia from Norwegian club FK Aalesund after completing all the mandatory paperwork on Thursday.
The 26-year-old was on his way to English side Sunderland during the January transfer window but the deal fell through after they failed to match the asking price of FK Aalesund.
“CSKA have signed with the Ghanaian national player Edwin Gyasi. The management has agreed on his rights with his former club Aalesunds FK club from Norway, and today the player initiated his personal contract,” club statement read.
“Gyasi is a Dutchman at birth, and grows up in the country where he builds himself as a footballer. Because of his Ghanaian parents, he received an invitation to play for the African country for which he recorded two matches and one goal against Egypt in the last World Cup qualifiers. We wish Edwin Gyasi a lot of health, luck and success with the red team,” the statement added.
Gyasi believes this opportunity will provide him the chance to win trophies in Bulgaria.
“I can not wait to start training with the team. I am glad to be part of the greatest Bulgarian club, in which world known players such as Stoichkov and Berbatov have played,” Gyasi told the club’s website.
“The ambition for trophies and big games in Europe has brought me to CSKA. Roland Alberg told me about the fantastic fans and the good atmosphere in the club, ” he added.
Gyasi scored 13 goals in 53 caps for Aalesund during his stay in Norway.
