Ghana skipper Asamoah Gyan has passed Al Ahli UAE medicals and is set to seal move back to the UAE just a day after his move to English side Reading failed.
Asamoah Gyan who moved to China from UAE side Al Ains has lost his first team place at Shanghai SIPG due to injuries and is seeking a transfer to get enough play time ahead of the AFCON 2017 tournament in Gabon.
Gyan made his name in England playing for the Black Cats, who he joined from Rennes in 2010. He spent two seasons with the Black Cats before heading to Al Ain in Abu Dhabi where he scored a staggering 73 goals in 65 games – including 44 goals in one season.
Then in July 2015 he joined Chinese Super League team Shanghai SIPG – having secured a contract which made him one of the best paid players on the planet – taking home £227,000 a week.
