Asamoah Gyan hails quality of Turkish league

Ghana captain Asamoah Gyan has hailed the quality of the Turkish Super Lig after joining Kayserispor.

Gyan, 31, has signed a two-year deal with the European outfit after ending a short loan spell at Dubai-based Al Ahli.

The Ghana international rejected several offers to return to mainstream Europe - five years after leaving English side Sunderland.

The goal poacher has revealed the reasons for joining the side.

"The quality of the league increases. That's why I know I'm in a quality league," he said

"But I will think of my team instead of proving myself among these players.

"Because, if Kayserispor wins, people will be happy, and I will be happy when people are happy.

" Of course, there is nothing that makes people as happy as scoring goals. But first the team."

The Ghanaian has been involved in the side's pre-season programme since joining the side after an extended break where he embarked on several charity work in his native country.
