Black Stars captain Asamoah Gyan is close to sealing a transfer move from Chinese Super League club Shanghai SIPG to an English club.

The former Sunderland player is evaluating offers from English clubs so he could keep on scoring goals, he says.

Gyan is however not going to make the English Premier League a preference despite him being confident his next football club will be in England.

The player joined his current club, Shanghai SIPG from Al Ain and played well in his first season. However, a series of niggling injuries and the arrival of former FC Porto and Zenit St Petersburg striker Hulk has been the final indication that Gyan’s time with the Chinese club is up.

The Black Stars captain is looking for a new club and told Sky Sports News HQ about the rumours concerning his return to England where he played for Sunderland for two years:

“I have a lot of options. Me and my agent are here to evaluate them and get the work done, and then I can continue doing what I do best, which is scoring goals and playing well.

"I am confident I will have a club in England. There are good options to think about, so we had to fly in quickly. Me being in England means there is something concrete, so we need to evaluate the options and do the work.

"I heard about Sunderland and Fulham but we will see what happens. There might be surprises. Football is full of them. The people around me are trying to benefit me. It doesn't matter if it is Championship or Premier league, it's about being comfortable where I am.

"Sunderland is a good club. It was unfortunate I didn't play for many years there. I had to leave and that is football. Sometimes you stay for a long time at a club and then other times you go. I just want to prove myself again in England. I am ready to go.

"I went to the Middle East but I was scoring goals for the national team and in the world cup. I don't regret it at all and now I am back to prove myself again. Maybe it is my destiny to be back to the Premier League or the Championship.

"Maybe we will make a decision tonight, or tomorrow.”
