He initially spent two seasons on loan at Modena but returned to his parent club for the 2006/07 season where he played 26 games, scoring eight times. The following season, he suffered an injury that limited his playing time. But he still managed three goals in 13 appearances.

Stade Rennes

After four years in Italy, Gyan left for Stade Rennes in France in a €8 million deal. In 53 appearances in all competitions he scored 14 times, with his second season being the highlight. In 30 games he found the net on 13 occasions. He was once again plagued by injuries though and only played three times in the 2010/11 season.


After a high profile summer at the 2010 World Cup with Ghana, Gyan left Rennes for Sunderland in the EPL. He soon started scoring goals, finishing with 11 in his 33 appearances, including a stoppage time equalizer against archrivals Newcastle. Although he began the next season at Sunderland he left after just three games to join Al Ain on loan.

He ended his time in the country winning three league titles as well as the UAE Super Cup in 2012 and the UAE President’s Cup in 2014.

Shanghai SIPG

In 2015 Gyan left the UAE for China and signed for Super League side Shanghai SIPG. His contract instantly made him one of the highest paid footballers in the world. He ended up making 26 appearances over two seasons, scoring eight goals in the process.

Shabab Al-Ahli Dubai

Gyan returned to the UAE for the second half of the 2016/17 season, signing on loan for Shabab Al-Ahli Dubai. Once again he became the star of the show, finding the net on 11 occasions in 26 games.
