The Ghana international wants to make another mark in England, four years after leaving for the United Arab Emirates.
Shanghai SIPG striker Asamoah Gyan has shed light on his imminent move to England after touching down in the country.
The 30-year-old is expected to complete a move before the transfer window shuts on August 31, with a series of clubs on his heels.
Having played for Sunderland between 2010 and 2012, the frontman is reportedly eyeing a move back to the club, while Championship sides Reading and Fulham have also been mentioned.
“I am confident I will have a club in England. There are good options to think about, so we had to fly in quickly," Gyan told Sky Sports.
“Me being in England means there is something concrete, so we need to evaluate the options and do the work.
“I heard about Sunderland and Fulham but we will see what happens. There might be surprises. Football is full of them.
“The people around me are trying to benefit me. It doesn’t matter if it is Championship or Premier League, it’s about being comfortable where I am.”
Gyan netted 10 goals for the Black Cats during his first England spell.
He added: “Sunderland is a good club. It was unfortunate I didn’t play for many years there.
“I had to leave and that is football. Sometimes you stay for a long time at a club and then other times you go.
“I just want to prove myself again in England. I am ready to go. I went to the Middle East but I was scoring goals for the national team and in the World Cup.
“I don’t regret it at all and now I am back to prove myself again. Maybe it is my destiny to be back to the Premier League or the Championship."
Following his first Sunderland stint, Gyan left for Al-Ain in the United Arab Emirates, before heading for Shanghai SIPG in China.
