Ex-Sunderland striker Gyan could leave Al-Ain for European return

Asamoah Gyan has hinted that he may be considering a return to European football.

The former Sunderland striker struck a hat-trick in the 3-0 win over Dubai to help Al-Ain win the Etisalat UAE Pro League title, taking his season tally to 28 goals, but suggests he could be looking for a way to come back to Europe.

"I have won two titles here. I am scoring goals, but I'm not playing in front of 50,000 fans," he said.

"I am missing European football sometimes, but don't get me wrong I am happy here and it's nice to be here.

"However, if there is a possibility to return to a very good European club then of course I would take the opportunity. It would be very exciting to score goals again in a European league."

Since joining Al-Ain from Sunderland in 2011, Gyan has scored a whopping 50 league goals in 37 appearances.
