Black Stars captain Asamoah Gyan has offered his support for Turkey’s bid to host the 2024 European Championship finals.

"Turkey is one of the best countries in Europe. Especially Istanbul is one of the best cities in the world. There are coming from around the globe to see the city. Very nice outside Istanbul There are cities, " said the Kayserispor forward.

Turkey is competing against a bid from world football powerhouse Germany who are also interested in hosting the competition.

Uefa, European football's governing body, will announce the host nation on 27 September.

Euro 2024 will return to a single-host format, after Euro 2020 is held in 12 cities across Europe.
