The Millionaires have officially announced the signing of the Ghana legend as they look forward to have an awesome campaign in the Premier League
Legon Cities FC have signed former Ghana captain Asamoah Gyan in a one-year deal on transfer deadline day, the club has confirmed.
The 34-year-old was initially on his way to join Asante Kotoko and although Gyan publicly admitted his readiness to join the Porcupine Warriors, the negotiations fell through midway which gave Legon Cities the chance to hijack the move.
Gyan, who last featured in the Ghana Premier League with Liberty Professionals almost two decades ago, comes with a lot of experience following a successful career which took him to Serie A side Udinese, Stade Rennes in France as well becoming the record signing at Premier League side Sunderland in 2010.
Although, Gyan has been globetrotting recently with moves to Al Ain and Alhli in Dubai as well as Shanghai SIPG in China, Legon Cities would be counting on him for goals apart from the commercial effect of his arrival.
Gyan last played for India Super League side North East United FC and our sources have revealed that he will earn over $1 million after completing his deal to Legon Cities.
Aside the arrival of Gyan, former Asante Kotoko midfielder Baba ‘football president’ Mahama has also joined Legon together with David Cudjoe, Jonah Attuquaye, Vincent Adu Gyamfi and defender Michael Ampadu.
