FootyGhana understands on loan Sunderland and Ghana striker Asamoah Gyan is set to sign a 5-year permanent deal with Al Ain after a loan spell with the UAE Champions expired this summer. This 5-year deal could see the Baby Jet (as he is affectionately called) go home with a ‘whopping’ £140,000 weekly wage in a £15 million additional transfer fee. Sunderland will therefore milk a total of £21 million from Al Ain for the Ghanaian striker.
Gyan joined Sunderland from French side Stade Rennes at a club record fee of £13.1 million after a successful 2010 World Cup campaign with the Black Stars in South Africa.
He then made a shocking move from Sunderland by joining the team in the Garden city on a record £6 million loan deal from Sunderland in September 2011 and scored 27 goals in 24 matches which catapulted Al Ain into clinching the UAE Etisalat Pro League trophy.
