Former Ghana captain, Asamoah Gyan is set for a final payday in his career with a move to Legon Cities mooted as his last hurray in what has been an illustrious career. Gyan who has played in Italy, England, France, Turkey, and the Gulf is reportedly on the verge of joining Legon Cities after agreeing a long-term deal with the Ghana Premier League club.

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