It has earlier been speculated that Black Stars captain, Asamoah Gyan has finalized a deal to buy a club in the Brong Ahafo regional capital, Sunyani.

The Kayserispo striker according to the reports sighted by would relocate the Sunyani based Division One side, Young Apostles Football Club to his native hometown Wenchi in the newly created Bono East region.

But Asamoah Gyan' manager, Sammy Anim Addo has rubbished reports claiming his client is on the verge of purchasing a football club in his native Ghana.

"The reports are not true. It's a misrepresentation of what has been discussed," he affirmed.

"There is no such plan to buy any team. Gyan is committed to helping his people in Wenchi but he has not tossed with any idea to purchase a football club.

"He (Gyan) has his people at heart and will do anything within his mean to offer any form of support required. But he has not even spoken about buying a club.

"That discussion is not on the table and so let people disregard those reports."

Anim Addo's presence in Wenchi this week to inspect the water project commissioned by the iconic Black Stars leader may have fueled the speculation.

But it appears Gyan has no intention of owning a football club, at least for the moment.
