The general captain for the Blackstars Asamoah Gyan has inked a 4-year long term deal with Ghanaian premier league club Legon Cities worth million of Ghana cedis.

Earlier, there were speculations that the former Sunderland striker was on the verge of signing for Kumasi Asante Kotoko but things didn’t go well between the two parties until Legon cities came into the picture.
