Sunderland boss Steve Bruce is ready to sell star striker Asamoah Gyan - after the Ghanaian hitman's name was circulated to clubs yesterday.
The African striker could be sold in the summer to raise money for more new players - even after the departure of Jordan Henderson to Liverpool in a £20million deal.
Gyan's availability was flashed to leading Premier League clubs - and outfits abroad - as the surprise player in a list of 'for sale' talent sent out by an agent close to the club.
Bruce signed Gyan for a stunning £15million from French side Rennes a year ago and he paid him back with 10 goals in a season that fizzled out for the Black Cats.
There is no price on Gyan's head on the e-mailed list, but inquiries have to be made via the North-East agency that has put round their list of players to move.
The news will come as a shock to Sunderland's fans who have seen Henderson go and are awaiting the arrival of several new faces as Bruce builds a new team.
