Agent breaks silence on Gyan future

African Football

Asamoah Gyan's future has been clarified after he was linked with a sensational return to African football to either South Africa or Egypt.

Gyan, 34, is currently unattached after leaving Indian Super League outfit NorthEast United and he recently admitted that an Absa Premiership side made contact over his availability.

While the interest seemingly didn't escalate further, reports in Ghana has suggested that he's in advanced talks to join Egyptian Premier League club Wadi Degla.

Despite Degla holding vast financial resources backed by businessman Maged Samy, who also owns Belgian club Lierse SK, the move raised eyebrows due to their precarious position in the relegation zone at present.

And with the Black Stars record-scorer looking for a new club for the 2020/21 season, his Egyptian-based representative Islam Serageldin has sought to explain the surprising links.

"I am hoping to get him to the Egyptian league. I convinced him of the idea of playing in Egypt," Serageldin told AFHQ.

"In my opinion, Gyan can play for two more years. There is nothing close with Degla but it is one of the clubs that I have proposed to the player. In general, I hope to bring a famous player like Gyan to the Egyptian league."

The veteran striker scored four goals in eight appearances in the Indian top-flight before an injury ended his season during his short stint.
