Former Ghana captain Asamoah Gyan has stated that he will join Asante Kotoko once he is fully fit.

The forward was very close to fulfilling his dream of playing Kotoko in 2020. Gyan talked with the club, but in the end, decided to join Legon Cities.

“I have been an Accra boy. I didn’t want to move to another City and then Legon Cities contacted me. Although I was talking to Kotoko, but I wanted to be in Accra,” he explained on the Dentaa Show.

“When I get fit and start playing competitive football, obviously I will play for Kotoko.”

Gyan struggled at Legon Cities and left the club after a year. He only appeared in six games and did not register a goal.

The 36-year-old has been inactive since leaving Legon Cities in October 2021.

Gyan said last week that he is targetting a return to the Black Stars for the 2022 World Cup.
