Black Stars captain, Asamoah Gyan has received a €1.6m offer from Turkish club, Bursaspor.
According to an offer letter making rounds in the media, the Turkish club is ready to offer Gyan a three-year contract with an annual salary of €1.6m.

YEN will bring you up to speed if Asamoah finally signs this new deal. He is expected to fly to Turkey after the Black Stars upcoming friendlies with USA and Mexico.
The Black Stars skipper reached a significant milestone in his football career last week when he scored his 50th goal for Ghana since joining the senior national team some fourteen (14) years ago.
He becomes Ghana’s all-time goal-scorer, a record considered by many soccer analysts as no mean an achievement.
