History-making Black Stars captain, Asamoah Gyan, has admitted he regrets leaving the English Premier League.

Gyan joined then Premier League side Sunderland for £ 13m in 2010 after a successful World Cup campaign with Ghana.

Gyan left Sunderland for Al-Ain in the UAE after just one season although he made an instant impact in the league scoring 10 goals and providing 4 assists in his first season.

But in an interview with Citi FM on the Traffic Avenue on Wednesday, Gyan says he wish he could’ve stayed longer at the club and has opened the door to a possible return to the Premier League.

“I enjoyed my time at Sunderland. The fans were amazing and I had a great one year there. I should’ve continued but that is football; Al-Ain came calling,” he said.

“As a footballer you will receive offers and Al-Ain made a very good offer at that time. But leaving the best league in the world to UAE was very difficult, but after I signed I wept.”

The Black Stars captain was later asked if he will fancy a move to the English Premier League and his respnose was “Yes”.
