Asamoah Gyan flies into England and I'm told a move to Reading is now emerging as a real possibility.

Asamoah Gyan has flown into the south-east of England on Sunday to evaluate a number of offers from English clubs.

The 30-year-old Ghana striker is the subject of interest from Sunderland, Fulham and several other Championship sides over a season-long loan from Chinese Super League team Shanghai SIPG.

Gyan, who spent two years at Sunderland until a move to UAE club Al Ain in 2012, says he is back to prove himself in England and will not necessarily choose the Premier League over the Championship.

He told Sky Sports News HQ: "I have a lot of options. Me and my agent are here to evaluate them and get the work done, and then I can continue doing what I do best, which is scoring goals and playing well.

"I am confident I will have a club in England. There are good options to think about, so we had to fly in quickly. Me being in England means there is something concrete, so we need to evaluate the options and do the work.
"I heard about Sunderland and Fulham but we will see what happens. There might be surprises. Football is full of them. The people around me are trying to benefit me. It doesn't matter if it is Championship or Premier league, it's about being comfortable where I am.

"Sunderland is a good club. It was unfortunate I didn't play for many years there. I had to leave and that is football. Sometimes you stay for a long time at a club and then other times you go. I just want to prove myself again in England. I am ready to go.

"I went to the Middle East but I was scoring goals for the national team and in the world cup. I don't regret it at all and now I am back to prove myself again. Maybe it is my destiny to be back to the Premier League or the Championship.

"Maybe we will make a decision tonight, or tomorrow."

Well this could potentially be a very exciting signing.

A massive upgrade on what we have, and has the talent to score an absolute hatful at Champ level.

Safe to say we wouldn't be paying £227k pw. If it happens, it feels like a shop window move. Get himself back in Europe and scoring goals. If we go up, we have first refusal else another top flight club may make a move.

So... About seeing avram grant at the madejski last season... Is this is the owners working their magic again. What a signing this would be

Putting 2 & 2 together, Grant may well have had a word with this, if it goes ahead.

Oh and Reading fans getting excited about a signing just because they've heard of him shocker.

He has been trouble everywhere he's been. Doesn't get into some Chinese backwater side and didn't really set the world alight last time he was in the UK.

Avoid.

Personally, nothing to do with 'having heard of him'. His goal scoring record kind of speaks for itself. Which might be why people have heard of him :lol:
