Moneybags Legon Cities have reportedly signed former Ghana captain and all time top scorer Asamoah Gyan in the current transfer window.

Kotoko have been linked with the signing of the striker all this while but it appears Legon Cities have stolen a march on them an wrapped up the fine details with Asamoah Gyan.

The former Sunderland, Rennes striker has been without a club since leaving Indian Super League side NorthEast United last year.

Asamoah Gyan would want to finish a career that has given him so much with the last roll of the dice on home soil but wants a club that can match his ambition financially and on the pitch.

Kumasi Asante Kotoko a club he has professed love for times without number according reports in the local media were put off his signature after he demanded a mammoth GH 400,0000.

No figure has been made available with Legon Cities but according local reports, the filthy rich club who want to take the league by storm are willing to pay the former Black Stars striker more than $50,000 to play for the royals.

Gyan will add further allure and appeal to the well branded and neatly packaged Legon Cities Football club commercial wise and add goals.

The 34 year old is the highest goal scoring African at the FIFA World Cup with seven goals and all time leading goal scorer for Ghana.
