Legon Cities striker Asamoah Gyan is expected to begin training with the club this week.
Legon Cities won all the big talking points when they officially announced the signing of the Black stars general captain, Gyan on the transfer deadline day.
Gyan signed a one-year deal with the ‘Royals’ ahead of the 2020/21 Ghana Premier League and is expected to use his worth of experience to aid the club as they hope to finish in a respectable position at the end of the season.
Gyan, who is the top goalscorer in Black Stars’ history with 51 goals makes a return to the Ghanaian top-flight, 17 years after leaving Liberty Professionals.
The former Sunderland striker scored 10 goals in 16 games before he left Liberty in 2003 to embark on a career that incorporated spells in Italy, France, England, Turkey, China and the United Arab Emirates.
He has scored 168 goals for nine clubs. During an illustrious international career, Gyan not only scored at several Africa Cup of Nations but also became the highest scoring African in World Cup history – with six goals.
Gyan was not the only addition Legon Cities made ahead of the new season.
