Asamoah Gyan signs one-year deal with local side Legon Cities

Ghana Premier League side Legon Cities have signed Black Satrs legend Asamoah Gyan, for the upcoming 2020/21 season.

His return was confirmed by the Ghana Premier League on Saturday local transfer deadline day, with the 34-year-old putting pen to paper on a one-year deal.

The signing marks Gyan’s return to domestic football for the first time since 2003 when he left Liberty Professionals for Italian side Udinese, embarking on a career that would include stints in England, France and China among others.

He last featured for Indian Super League outfit NorthEast United with whom he parted ways in January after a brief spell, and signs for Legon Cities despite recently announcing an interest to play for domestic giants Asante Kotoko before calling time on his professional career.

At international level, Gyan, who scored his nation’s first ever World Cup goal in 2006, is Ghana’s most-capped player and all-time top scorer, having made 106 appearances and racked up 51 strikes.

With six goals, he also stands as Africa’s all-time top scorer at the World Cup after shattering Cameroon great Roger Milla’s record at the 2014 global showpiece in Brazil.

At the Africa Cup of Nations, the forward is second on the list of Ghana’s all-time top scorers as the tournament, sitting only one strike behind Swansea City attacker Andre Ayew, who has nine goals to his name.
