Former Ghana captain Asamoah Gyan is currently undertaking his coaching badges but even before he is done, Gyan is eyeing a move to former club Sunderland AFC.

Ghana's all time top scorer with 51 goals is currently  in  Wales for his UEFA License B coaching badges.

He was snapped up by Sunderland for a club-record £13 million ($17.7m) on the final day of the 2010 summer transfer window thanks in no small part to his performances at the World Cup in South Africa.

Gyan only spent one season on Wearside but he remains a cult hero on account of his habit for netting key goals, including a 94th-minute equaliser against local rivals Newcastle United.

He netted 11 times in all competitions for Sunderland but left in 2011 left in 2011 when UAE side Al-Ain offered him a loan deal – later made permanent – worth a reported £162,000-a-week ($220,000).

Babyjet as he is affectionately called has told the Sunderland supporters that he will return to the club as a technical staff.

"Say hi to the Sunderland fans, I miss them and I guess that's life. Hopefully I will see you guys in the future," said Gyan on social media most recently, as he wished Arizona based coach Ged Quinn well in his own endeavours.

He parted ways with Legon Cities in October last 2021 and has since been without a club although he has not announced his retirement.

The former Al Ain striker is Ghana's all time top scorer with 51 goals and is the highest scoring African at  the World Cup with 6 goals.

Gyan has over 200 club goals, having represented the likes of Udinese, Sunderland, Rennes and Al Ain in the United Arab Emirates.
