Ghana winger Edwin Gyasi says his desire to play big matches in Europe and win trophies with a club with a big history is what informed his decision to join Bulgarian giants CSKA Sofia.
Gyasi put pen to paper to the deal to complete the move ending interest from several English sides who were reported to be interested in his signature.
He became the fifth player to join CSKA Sofia this autumn after the signing of Roland Alberg, Jérferson Teles, Jean Carlos Blanco and Andre Montero.
The Ghana international says his desire to achieve big things in his career was what drove him to sign for the capital-based club.
“I cannot wait to start training with the team,” Gyasi said after sealing the deal with one of the biggest clubs in Bulgaria.
“I am glad to be part of the biggest Bulgarian club, of which world-renowned players such as Stoichkov and Berbatov have played for.
“The ambition for trophies and big matches in Europe has brought me to CSKA.
“Roland Albergen further told me about the fantastic crowd and good atmosphere at the club.”
Edwin Gyasi, is a product of AZ Alkmaar academy school where he was a teammate with CSKA Sofia midfielder Roland Alberg.
