UEFA Cup winner Christian Gyan looks set to join Wrexham until the end of the season, manager Dean Saunders confirmed last night.
The 30-year old former Ghana international (right), who spent the bulk of his career in Dutch football and was a member of Feyenoord’s Uefa Cup-winning team in 2002, has impressed the Dragons boss during a two-week trial period.
Saunders, who had his players in for training yesterday, expects the versatile Gyan to bring some much-needed experience to his relatively young squad.
“We are close to agreeing a deal that will see Christian stay until the end of the season,” he said. “He is a quality player who is equally at home at right back or in the centre of midfield and he has the experience we need.
“Sometimes you need an old head in the spine of the team, someone who is able to complement the youth and enthusiasm of younger players around him. Christian played for Feyenoord for 10 years and we are very lucky to get him on board.”
Gyan, who recently completed a six-month spell in Finland with TPS Turku, is not expected to play in tomorrow evening’s Blue Square Premiership clash with Northwich Victoria at the Racecourse.
One player certain to start, though, is Cardiff City’s teenage winger Jon Brown, whose loan spell with the Dragons has now been extended for the remainder of the season.
