Here, we will take a look at a few former Premier League stars and see where they are playing their football now and explore how they are getting on.

Yakubu

Yakubu played for Portsmouth, Middlesbrough, Everton and Blackburn Rovers. The Nigerian scored many goals for the English sides and possibly his most famous work was at Portsmouth where in 65 appearances he scored a total of 29 goals - but where is he now?

The player that was such a big part of the Premier League - where he spent just over 10 years - now plays his football in China under none other than former England boss Sven Goran Eriksson. He plays his football for Guangzhou R&F and his team currently sit 5th in the Chinese Super League.

Yakubu has scored a total of 22 goals in 38 appearances, proving he still has an eye for goal. Although the league is in stark contrast to the Premier League, it is another achievement he can treasure.

Dennis Rommedahl

Dennis Rommedahl played in England from 2004-2007 for Charlton Athletic and was a winger for the London-based club. Rommedahl made a total of 75 appearances for Charlton and scored a total of nine goals before moving on to Dutch Giants Ajax.

Rommedahl was a fantastic asset in the Charlton side but eventually had to move on.

Rommedahl still occupies the right wing but is yet to play for his current club RKC Waalwijk who play their football in the Eredivisie in the Netherlands.

Asamoah Gyan

Gyan was a nightmare for defenders in the Premier League. He had tons of pace and was quickly away from his marker. The power in his shots were hit with tremendous power and although he will not go down as a Premier League legend, i'm sure he will be one that Sunderland fans remember.

Gyan scored 10 goals during his time at Sunderland and made a big impact during his short stay in the Premier League.

So where does Gyan play now? He now plays his football in Qatar. He plays for Al Ain where he has scored a total of 31 goals in 22 appearances - a fantastic record even for a league that is only just starting to develop.

Gyan still plays for his home country Ghana and could be key for them if they are to proceed past their group in Brazil next year.
