The Ghanaian forward, who once played for Sunderland under Steve Bruce (better days for Black Cats fans) is still playing, despite most of us forgetting all about his existence.

He’s surprisingly still only 31-years-old, having had spells in Abu Dhabi and China, before heading to Turkish also-rans Kayserispor earlier this week.

Yeah, we don’t think we’ve heard of them either.

The club’s official website announced the new signing on Wednesday, confirming the Ghana international has signed a two-year deal.

For those of you who haven’t heard of Kayserispor, they’ve finished just above the relegation zone in the Turkish top flight for the last two seasons.

Good times

Gyan fell off the radar in 2012, going on a five-year absence from Europe when he left the Stadium of Light on a season long loan to Al Ain FC Amid, before joining Shanghai SIPG in the Chinese Super League.

The forward was once considered one of the finest strikers in the Premier League, scoring 10 goals during the 2010-11 season, having impressed during the 2010 World Cup.

It’s all gone a bit downhill since, although he did make the news earlier this year for breaching Saudi Arabian hairstyle rules.
