NEW Sunderland signing Asamoah Gyan insists his huge price tag will not be a burden as he prepares for his debut in the English Premier League.
The Ghana striker made the move from Stade Rennes in France to the Stadium of Light in England on the final day of the transfer window.
Sunderland say they paid in excess of £13m for the 24-year-old. Gyan was in incredibly good spirits on international duty with Ghana in Swaziland over the weekend.
According to Gyan, those good spirits are a direct result of the move he describes as a highlight of his career.
“It has been my dream to go to England and it is one of the best moments of my career,” he told BBC Sport.
But with that dream move clinched, Gyan knows every day will be like a trial to justify the price tag and prove himself worthy of the money.
