Legon Cities to announce Asamoah Gyan signing in coming hours

Ghanaian top-flight side Legon Cities FC are set to announce the signing of legendary striker Asamoah Gyan.

The announcement of the Black Stars all-time top scorer is expected to be made in the coming hours.

Gyan, who has been without a club since January, has agreed deal with the Legon-based club after Asante Kotoko failed to meet his demands.

Ghanaoccernet.com understands Gyan has agreed 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 returning to the local league, 17 years after leaving Liberty Professionals.

He has gone on to play in Premier League with Sunderland and dominated United Arab Emirates league. The Al Ain striker won the league’s golden boot three times.
