Africa’s World Cup top scorer, Asamoah Gyan has confirmed his switch to India side, Super League side NorthEast United.
The 33-year-old striker joins the Highlanders on a free transfer after leaving Turkish club Kayserispor at the end of last season.
Gyan bemoaned his lack of game time at Ghana’s poor outing in the 2019 AFCON which he revealed cost him the opportunity of signing for a European Club. However, the Black Stars General Captain shared his excitement after signing for the Super League side.
“I am extremely excited to start this new chapter in my career. I have heard great things about NorthEast United FC and the Indian Super League and I am thrilled to be a part of it for the upcoming season. I am confident that we can better the wonderful season the club had last year,” the former Sunderland striker said.
NorthEast United Executive Director, Priya Runchal added: “We are thrilled to have a player of Gyan’s calibre and experience join our squad. He has continuously delivered excellence at the highest of levels of world football and we are confident that he will add a lot of firepower on the pitch here.”
Asamoah Gyan’s move makes it his 10th club in a career that begun with Dasoman based Liberty Professionals. He has played in Italy, France, England, United Arab Emirates China and Turkey.
