Asamoah Gyan to sign new three-year Al Ain deal next week after Sunday medical

The Ghanaian striker could confirm his future in the next week with the Garden City club's CEO stating "things will become clear soon" following reports of an upcoming medical
Al Ain chief executive officer Carlo Nohra says "things will become clear soon" on Asamoah Gyan's future at the club, with reports claiming he'll sign a new three-year deal after a medical next Sunday.

The 27-year-old Ghanaian striker scored 22 goals and helped Al Ain clinch the UAE Pro-League title last term while on loan from Premier League outfit Sunderland.

Al Ain management have made it clear they want to make Gyan's stay with the club permanent, with an option to do so in his loan contract from the Black Cats.

Gyan's future has been a topic of discussion this off-season with the player stating in May he's "ready to go anywhere". However last month he stated he would be happy to stay with Al Ain and Nohra later added a deal was "95 per cent done".

According to Sport360, Gyan will now undergo a medical with the club next Sunday before penning a three-year deal.

Nohra also told reporters: “Regarding Gyan there’s nothing yet, but we are positive about him staying with us for a few more years. Things will become clear soon."

Meanwhile, Al Ain have also allegedly had a €2.1 million offer to sign striker Yasser Al Qahtani from parent club Al Hilal turned down.
