Asamoah Gyan Open To Sunderland Return-Reports

Ghana striker Asamoah Gyan is open to a return to Sunderland, according to reports from the Wearside. The 26-year-old has been a hit at UAE side Al-Ain since his shock loan move to the Gulf in September last year. Al-Ain officials are keen to tying down the Ghana international to a permanent. Last month, the English Premier League side announced that an unnamed Qatari side had made a bid for the former Rennes ace. But reports from Sunderland say manager Martin O�Neil is keen on getting Gyan back at the Stadium of Light to help his new project at the club. �There have been talks in the past few days with the player (Gyan) who is quite open about returning to the club,� a Sunderland insider told the Sunderland Echo. �O�Neil is leaving his options open at the end of the season and both parties will sit down for further talks in the summer and Gyan is positive about it.� Gyan scored a brace last Friday to become the UAE Etisalat Pro League top scorer with 15 goals.
