Sunderland manager Martin O’Neill has suggested Al-Ain are keen to complete a permanent deal for Ghana international striker Asamoah Gyan.

Gyan, 26, joined the United Arab Emirates club in September for a season-long stint worth £6m, with a view to a permanent move in the summer.

“There has to be some agreeement between all three parties before anything materialises,” said O’Neill.

“I think the club that he is playing for are pretty anxious to buy him.”

Gyan, who is currently involved in the Africa Cup of Nations, joined Sunderland from French side Rennes in August 2010 for a fee of £13m.

He has scored 11 goals in 37 appearances for the Black Cats.

    It was very bad and unfortunate for Asamoah to leave sunderland for this year long loan spell, all for the sake of money. He rushed for money, that was very unfortunate, and betrayed his Manager at Sunderland. That was very bad.

      I belive that the former manager of sunderland set a goal Target for Asamoah that was the reason why Ghanaman run away from there but not
      money…..infact the expectation was too high for Ghanaman and we all know that Ghanaman don’t want presure at all!!

    No matter how tempting the money is in UAE,your level of performance drops adequately because there is not enough competition there to challenge yourself at the highest level. Gyan, i think you should go back to Sunderland or anywhere in europe to test yourself again after your loan ends!

    U PEOPLE SHOULD STOP THE NONSENSE…DOES THE TEAM BELONG TO HIM?…DONT YOU KNOW IF HIS PERFOMANCE FALL IN SUNDERLAND HE WILL BE TOLD TO LEAVE?…HE SHOULD STAY AT AL HIN N MAKE SOME GUD MONEY FOR HIS CAREER…..FUTBALL IS ALL ABT THE MONEY…..

    we all need money to survive so i believe asamoah gyan would stay wit al ain rather than return for sme 10000 to 20000 pounds a week…even a loan deal gyan is bn paid abt 170000 pounds a week which is gud n a permanent deal wld be more…playin @ da big leagues is gud but da money al ain is givn him is tempting

    Sometimes l wonder what sort of planet some folks live on when l read comments like…..
    Gyan went because of money….
    Gyan left because he was afraid of pressure…
    Gyan is playing in a lower league so his standard will fall……..
    And l will answer to the above…..AND SO…
    Some people comment as l keep saying as if they are still breastfeeding
    Did Gyan went to AL-AIN on his own accord?
    Was it not Sunderland who for the crave for money let him off to AL-AIN?
    When SPURS chairman Daniel Levy decided not to allow LUKA MODRIC to joined Chelsea at any price and stood his ground,did Modric packed his bag and joined Chelsea ?None of his protest and transfer request worked against Levy.
    On the other hand Sunderland’s chaiman NEIL QUINN couldn’t let go £6MILLION and he offered Gyan as the sacrificial lamb.Even if Gyan went for money,is it wrong?
    If Gyan is playing football for the sake of it,then he would rather stay in GHANA and play GUTTER-GUTTER.
