Former Black Stars striker, Asamoah Gyan has insisted Asante Kotoko remains the only club he will like to play before he retires.

The 36-year-old before his move to Legon Cities before the start of the 2020/21 Ghana Premier League season was linked to the Porcupine Warriors but the move could not materialize.

The former Al Ain and Sunderland ace is now clubless after parting ways with the Royals after the expiration of his one-year contract.

Speaking to Graphic Sports, the former Liberty Professionals forward insisted he has plans of playing for the club but must first regain fitness before the move could be materialized.

"I support Kotoko, It's in my plans to join Kotoko but as I always say I have to be fit," Gyan said.

"You cannot have the talent and not be ready. Talent-wise, I am sure everybody will agree with me but the most important thing is to get back in shape and make sure there is no injury then I can decide," he added.

Gyan remains the country's all-time leading goal scorer with 51 goals for the senior national team, the Black Stars.
