World-record fee confirmed for African enigma - reports

Published Add your comment

Sunderland will receive a world record loan fee from Al-Ain for striker Asamoah Gyan, according to The Daily Mail.

After signing the Ghanaian for a club record £11.2 million last summer, following Gyan's showing for the The Black Stars during the World Cup in South Africa, the striker has seen his head turned by the money from the far east.

The Sunderland man was linked with a move to Turkey in the summer transfer window, however United Arab Emirates side Al-Ain appear to have won the race for his services.


Sunderland manager Steve Bruce is reportedly baffled by Gyan desire to leave the club, where he was No.1 choice striker at the club.

The loss leaves chasm in the heart of Sunderland's attack, where unproven pair Connor Wickham and Ji-Dong Won will compete for places with Nicklaus Bendtner.
