Ghana’s World Cup legend Asamoah Gyan has returned to the country’s top-flight league by signing for moneybags Legon Cities on Satuday night.
The 34-year-old sealed the deal on Friday night after meeting the club President of the ambitious side to conclude the deal.
Gyan, who has been without a club since January, has agreed deal with the Legon-based club after Asante Kotoko failed to meet his demands.
He has agreed a four-year deal which will see him earn more than $1 million – a record in the local transfer.
As part of the deal, Gyan asked the Ghana Premier League side to sign teenage sensation Mathew Cudjoe, who he believes will provide him with the passes to destroy their opponents in the country’s top-flight.
Cudjoe played on loan last season at Kotoko but the Porcupine Warriors could not sign him on a permanent deal.
Gyan is returning to the local league, 17 years after leaving Liberty Professionals.
He has gone on to play in the English Premier League with Sunderland and dominated the United Arab Emirates league. While at Al Ain, the striker won the league’s golden boot three times.
Gyan has scored 51 goals for the Black Stars since his debut in 2003.
