Ghana captain Gyan joins shanghai SIPG

Accra, July 11 (IANS) Ghana captain Asamoah Gyan has completed his move to Chinese football club Shanghai SIPG after signing a two-year contract.
Gyan on Friday signed the deal with an option for renewal after passing a routine medical, reports Xinhua. The Black Stars captain and striker will be unveiled at a press conference in Shanghai next week.

Shanghai SIPG were unable to organise a press conference to unveil Gyan as their latest signing because the team is travelling to Guangzhou to face R&F in an away league match, according to the attacker’s official website.

“I thank God for this special day,” said Gyan after signing the mega-deal.

Gyan has bagged 95 goals in 83 league matches in his four seasons for Al Ain in the United Arab Emirates (UAE).

The SIPG club was founded on December 25, 2005, as Shanghai Dongya F.C. by former Chinese international football coach Xu Genbao.

It is owned by the Chinese group Shanghai International Port Group and has the 56,842 seating capacity Shanghai stadium as its home venue.
