Asamoah Gyan set to earn $1 million at Legon Cities

Asamoah Gyan is on the verge of joining Legon Cities after agreeing a long term deal with the Ghana Premier League club.

Gyan, who has been a free agent since January after being released by North East United has been on the hunt for a new club.

A deal between Ghana’s all-time top scorer and Legon Cities has been agreed, with the official club announcement the only thing remaining.

As part of the deal, Gyan’s management team asked for teenage sensation Mathew Anim Cudjoe to be signed as well.

Joy Sports understands Gyan will also earn about $1 million in salary over his four-year contract as he will receive an annual salary of $250,000.

Asante Kotoko had been linked with the 34-year-old all summer but it looks like Legon Cities will have Gyan in their squad for next season alongside former Kotoko player, Mathew Cudjoe.
