Asamoah Gyan insists he is ready for a new challenge after being officially presented to the media by Al-Ain.
The Sunderland striker completed a season-long loan move over the weekend to the United Arab Emirates.
The Black Cats have reportedly received a £5million loan fee for Gyan, who insists he has joined a big club in the shape of Al-Ain.
"I'm really happy to be here. Al-Ain is an important club and this is a big challenge for me. There will be a lot of expectations on me, but not pressure," said Gyan.
"Everybody who has seen me in the World Cup and at Sunderland knows what I am capable of, but this is a new challenge for me as I'm a new player here.
"We have quality players in the club to win games and do well in the championships. We will try to build a winning team.
"It's a challenge to me. I made a decision with my family. Talking about the Asian league it is improving very well."
Asked whether he would make the move permanent, he added: "I don't promise. I'm somebody who doesn't promise."
