Gyan opened to January loan move

The Black Stars striker is set for a loan move to West Ham this winter as he eyes top level football before Brazil 2014

Ghana skipper Asamoah Gyan is still up for a January loan move despite pledging his future to his current side Al Ain last week.

According to Mirror Sport, the former Sunderland forward is open to a move back to England and is set to hold talks with Al Ain within the next few days as he eyes top level football before the 2014 World Cup.

Gyan remains the number one transfer target of West Ham as they seek to lift themselves up from the relegation zone.

The two-time UAE league top scorer moved to Al Ain from Sunderland on an initial loan deal in 2011 and made the move permanent last year, signing a lucrative five-year deal.
