Black Stars winger Edwin Gyasi joins Bulgarian giants CSKA Sofia

Ghana international winger Edwin Gyasi has joined Bulgarian giants CSKA Sofia from Norwegian side Alesund, Ghanasoccernet.com can exclusively reveal.

The 26-year-old winger sealed the deal in Sofia on Thursday morning after arriving from Norway for talks with the club.

The two sides reached an agreement early in the morning and Gyasi put pen to paper to the deal to complete the move.

He comes the fifth player to join CSKA Sofia this autumn after the signing of Roland Alberg, Jérferson Teles, Jean Carlos Blanco and Andre Montero.

The financial details were not made public but it is said to be a massive improvement over the deal he had his Norwegian club.

Gyasi is a Dutchman at birth and he grew up in the European country where he established himself as a footballer.

Because of his Ghanaian roots in the autumn of last year, he received an invitation to play for the African country for which he recorded two matches and one goal against Egypt in the final World Cup qualifiers.

Gyasi was born on 1 July 1991 in Amsterdam, he is 1.83m tall and acts as a winger on both flanks but can also play behind the striker.

He is the product of the AZ Alkmaar academy school where he was a teammate with CSKA Sofia midfielder Roland Alberg.

Then the career of a fast-dribbling footballer shows him playing for the top-flight sides of De Graafschap, Twente, Heracles and Roda.

In the last two seasons, Gyan has been successful in the Scandinavian side, with 53 games and 12 goals for Alesund.

He has been signed to boost the squad as the second-placed side CSKA are just one point behind leaders Ludogorets with six matches remaining.
