Gyan not keen on immediate return
Asamoah Gyan has confirmed that he wants to remain on loan with Al-Ain in the UAE for the remainder of the season.
The outcast Ghanaian forward had been linked with a re-call following Martin O'Neill's appointment.
However, Gyan has quickly denied that he would want to cut short his financially beneficial spell in the UAE.
Speaking to Goal.com, the former Rennes and Udinese striker said:
'For now I can`t really say anything about Sunderland. I am on loan for a year so we will have to see what happens at the end of the season.
'Will I come back to Sunderland at the end of this season? For now I don't want to talk about my situation because I am currently on loan and I am doing well. So let`s see where my future lies after my loan deal.'
The fact that the club's record signing is earning more with his temporary club than his parent club probably has something to do with his desire to stay.
On top of that, there is believed to be clause in the loan deal preventing Sunderland from re-calling Gyan.
