Turkish Superlig giants, Bursaspor look set to sign Ghana striker Asamoah Gyan in a free agent deal.
The club, last week, offered Gyan a three-year contract worth €4.8 million.
Club President Ali Ay confirmed that the club has been in talks with the Shanghai SIPG player’s representative.
Trying not to sound too committal after rumours went wild that the 31-year-old has joined the club earlier this week, the Green Crocodiles boss explained they have reached advanced stage with negotiations but can only be sure of his wearing the green and white colours next season when he finally signs.
“It was understood as a principle but you know that you cannot say that it is a done deal without official signature. It can get rough afterwards,” Ay said to the Turkish media.
“We [will] work hard to sign him. This deal will be concluded by 21-22 of the month [June],” he added.
Asamoah Gyan, who scored eight goals in 21 appearances on loan at UAE side Al Ahli, is represented by a Turkish agent.
Bursaspor managed to avoid relegation the completed a stadium project named the Crocodile Arena. They are on the verge of a squad overhaul with a dozen players said to be released while Gyan and Cameroon’s Alex Song could be among some new arrivals at the club. French manager Paul Le Guen is also set to be appointed by the side.
