The former Ghana captain has said that he won't play for the Porcupine Warriors without a fee.


Black Stars striker Asamoah Gyan has urged officials of Asante Kotoko to act professionally in their bid to secure his services for their next season's campaign.

Gyan disclosed that he is not ready to play for the Kumasi-based club on free basis despite revealing publicly to wear the Red jersey before hanging his boots.
The 34-year-old is currently unattached after his contract with Indian club NorthEast United got abrogated earlier this year.
He is seen as nearing the twilight of his football career which makes his switch to the Porcupine Warriors looks likely after the summer transfer window closed last week.
“I have said on countless occasion that I have Kotoko at heart, I have also said I will play for them before I retire from the game," Gyan told Adom TV 
"As I’m without a club there were speculations that the deal has been finalised but as a professional football player we don’t deal like that”
“Though I have made it known that I will play for them but at least we have to go through processes because I’m still a professional footballer. Sometimes I don’t want people to downgrade the Ghanaian league, at times people even get it wrong that if a player travels abroad then he is a professional footballer, but they don’t know that the Ghana league is professional”
“Kotoko should do everything professional although I have said I will play for them. I can just stand up and say I’m going to play for the club. I’m available so when they are ready we have to sit down and go through whatever is involved in terms of signing a contract”
Gyan also talked about his relationship with Asante Kotoko Chief Executive Officer, Nana Yaw Amponsah but insisted the club should act professionally in their  bid to secure his signature.
“The new Chief Executive, Nana Yaw Amponsah is my friend and a partner, he is a good guy and knows everything about the game, we talk behind the scene but it’s not even about football because of our relationship. Kotoko should just do things right, they need to do things that will suit the player and the club before the deal can go through, we don’t do a deal just like that”
“If everything goes the way I expect; I will join Kotoko. Football is my job and everything will depend on me and the club but it’s all about negotiations. People will say I have money, so I should play for free, but we don’t do that. If it happens that way, it means you are trying take advantage on me, people have the impression I love the club, so I will play for free, no, I won’t do that” he concluded.
