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.
