Striker Asamoah Gyan has confirmed that West Ham have slapped in a massive offer to sign him next month but says he is no position to decide on whether he will be making a return to the English Premier League.

The Hammers have reportedly tabled a tempting $165,000 a week deal for the Ghana captain to augment their forward line in their bid to escape relegation.

The 28-year-old has been in blistering form since joining the UAE giants in 2011 from Sunderland and has been outstanding for Ghana leading them to a third successive World Cup appearance.

West Ham now look to return to the ex Stade Rennes hitman to the Premier League in an audacious deal.

But the 28-year-old has told Ghana’s leading football news outfit that he will only move if Al Ain agree to the move.

“Yes I can confirm the offer (from West Ham) is real but then it is up to the club [Al Ain] to decide,” Gyan exclusively told GHANAsoccernet.com.

“I have a contract here and I am focused on doing my best for the club.

“So at this point, it is up to both clubs to decide the future and then we’ll see how it goes.”

Gyan joined the Boss on an initial season’s-long loan deal worth an incredible £6m.

The Black Stars striker then made his move permanent after helping the side to the UAE top flight title while emerging the top goal scorer.

West Ham are currently 17th in the English Premier League and are desperate to freshen up the squad in January – especially in attack where they’ve scored just 14 goals.

The Hammers have struggled for goals this season with their leading striker on just two goals in 15 appearances while Asamoah Gyan has racked up a staggering 14 in 11.

Gyan has made history in the UAE top-flight by being the first in the country’s football history to reach the 70 goal mark.

He has achieved this massive feat in just two seasons.

    I they are not going to bench him or make him a substitute player. We need him to be playing active everyday in order to be fit for the world. Asamoah am behind you on any decision you make. God bless you

  2. Papa Nkrumah says:

    West Ham are no Barcelona or Real Madrid. They won’t pay that kind of salary and have the player sit on the bench. Al Ain should consider. In the long term it is in everybody’s interest

  3. papa says:

    boss ASamoah Gyan is no small fry. he will never warm westham bench. my only worry is allardyce long ball footy.. its not good football at all

  4. PITO says:

    Asa Gyan, do not leave all decision to al ain because you are also a person..Request for guaranteed play time otherwise no move.

    Dem tell u say UAE league and EPL na d same thing ?.
    Any average striker would score hatricks in the amateur UAE league.

    One epl goal is equivalent to Five UAE goals

    • Nii OTOKUNOR says:

      @nigguh,in as much as i respect your oppinion about this issue,i still believe that your Asamoah is good enough for the test and your comparison as to the goal scoring abilities by this two strickers even puts as on top,do the the maths and and get back to me

  6. nigguh says:

    Any average striker would score hatricks in d amateur U.A.E league.But EPL no bi beans.
    One EPL goal is equivalent to Five U.A.E goals.

  7. Bemol says:

    Wat’s has bench row got 2 to with gyan? Can u pay a bench player dat huge amount of money?

  8. Assemblyman says:

    According to wikipedia the guy is earning 6.72 million GBP (2012) per year at his current club.While you West Ham are gonna give him 100,000 pounds a week.Which will equal 4.8 million GBP a year.Asamoah be Ghanaman,if West Ham dont up his salaries to tally up with his current earnings the least.I dont see Asamoah going there..Ghana ye p3 sika paaa lol

  9. papa nkrumah says:

    It’s only a loan for a short period so it works for all parties involved. I don’t think Gyan will be too bothered that he is going to lose some coins when he joins West Ham. In fact, players are known the world over to have taken pay cuts in order to do well and sharpen up elsewhere. Speak of Drogba, Etoo, Kaka, etc
