Sunderland striker Asamoah Gyan has promised supporters they will see the best of him next season now that he’s settled at the club and up to speed with the ways of the Premier League.

The Black Cats' record signing showed glimpses of why he’s so highly rated by Steve Bruce and managed 11 goals in what was something of a stop-start season - his first in English football.

With Darren Bent departing the club in January, the Ghanaian took on more responsibility in the Sunderland attack, and next season he's certain he'll be better equipped to show his true colours.

"I'll definitely be a better player next season," he said. "As I said before I came here, it was my dream to play in the English Premier League. I feel I have established myself now, but there is more to come.

"The fans love me which is really important. When the people are behind you, you keep going and I hope to do more.


"It depends on me keeping working hard. There are some seasons where things don't go well, but that doesn't mean you are a bad player."

After leading Ghana to the World Cup quarter-finals last summer, much was expected of Gyan following his move to Sunderland, something that his £13 million fee did nothing to dampen.

With his debut season in the Premier League behind him, and a full pre-season to come, the African forward believes he can now show his worth. "It's the most difficult league in the world and you need to be 100 per cent fit to survive, which I wasn't when I arrived," Gyan added.

"There have been plenty of good players who have come to the Premier League and not done well, so it just shows how difficult it is."
