thumbnail Hello,

The on-loan striker helped the Boss clinch the UAE Pro-League crown on Friday, but revealed little on his own future although he admitted he's happy at Al Ain

Ghanaian striker Asamoah Gyan has remained tight-lipped on his playing future as Al Ain clinched the 2011-12 UAE Pro-League title after a 2-0 victory over Al Jazira on Friday.

Gyan, 26, has spent the 2011-12 campaign on loan at Al Ain from English Premier League outfit Sunderland whose boss Martin O'Neill recently admitted his return could be unlikely.

Speaking to reporters after Al Ain secured the UAE title, the former Rennes and Udinese striker said his future remained unclear at this stage but revealed he is happy in the Emirati nation.

“On June 30 I will know then when my loan finishes, but I don’t know anything before that. I’m happy to be an Al Ain player. I’m very happy to be here,” Gyan said.

As for the title which was secured with three games to play, he added: “We are so happy. The team has worked so hard for past 10 months and I am happy to be part of the team.

“We have a very good coach with an incredible CV. I’ve no doubt we won because we worked so hard. We deserved this."

Gyan has been a key part of Al Ain's 10th UAE title, netting 17 goals during the term to be the league's leading goalscorer.
