Ghana striker Asamoah Gyan is set for medicals at Championship side, Reading FC Sky sources have revealed.
Gyan, 30, is expected to tie a season-long loan deal with The Royals from his Chinese outfit, Shanghai SIPG.
Very confident that he will always find a new club to highlight that he is still very much relevant, Gyan was understood to also be commanding interests from a couple of other teams in England and Turkey before making the Reading choice.
Already, Gyan told Sky Sports News HQ on Sunday that he wanted the best move for him so he could prove himself again in English football after leaving for UAE club Al Ain.
He said: “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”
