Former Ghana captain Asamoah Gyan seeks new challenge in Indian as he joins NorthEast United

Ghana’s all-time top scorer Asamoah Gyan has joined Indian Super League side NorthEast United on a free transfer.

The 33-year old has signed for the Guwahati-based after his contract with Turkish Super Lig side Kayserispor expired on July 1.

This is the 10th club he will be representing in his professional career, having had stints in home country Ghana with Liberty Professionals, as well as Italy, England, France, United Arab Emirates, China and Turkey.

“I am extremely excited to start this new chapter in my career”, Gyan told the media.

The former captain of the Black Stars captain is hopeful that his addition to the Indian side will push the club to higher heights.

“I have heard great things about NorthEast United FC and the Indian Super League and I am thrilled to be a part of it for the upcoming season.

“I am confident that we can better the wonderful season the club had last year”, he added.

Gyan is Ghana's leading top-scorer with 51 goals from 107 international matches. He is also the country's leading scorer at the Africa Cup of Nations and FIFA World Cup.

The Ghana star is a direct replacement for Nigeria's Bartholomeu Ogbeche who left NorthEast United to join another ISL side, Kerala Blasters.

The Highlanders finished fourth in the ISL last season, their highest ever placing since their formation in 2014. They kickstart their 2019-20 campaign with an away tie at Bengaluru FC on October 21.
