Black Stars general captain Asamoah Gyan has joined the Ghanaian Premier League side Legon Cities on a four-year deal and expected to be announced in the coming hours.
According to Ghanasoccernet, Gyan, who has been without a club since January, has agreed on a deal with the Legon-based club after Asante Kotoko failed to meet his demands.
Gyan has agreed on a four-year deal which will see him earn $1 million – a record in the local transfer.
As part of the deal, Gyan has asked the Ghana Premier League side to sign teenage sensation Mathew Cudjoe.
Cudjoe played on loan last season at Kotoko but the Porcupine Warriors could not sign him on a permanent deal.
The 34-year-old is returned to the local league, 17 years after leaving Liberty Professionals.
He has gone on to play in the Premier League with Sunderland and dominated United Arab Emirates league. The Al Ain striker won the league’s golden boot three times.
Gyan has scored 51 goals for the Black Stars since his debut in 2003.
