O'Neill to look into Gyan recall

New Sunderland manager Martin O'Neill has confirmed he will look into the possibility of recalling striker Asamoah Gyan from his loan at Al Ain.

Gyan, 26, secured a shock loan switch to United Arab Emirates side Al Ain in September, despite having joined Sunderland from Rennes for £13 million in 2010.

O'Neill, who officially took over from sacked manager Steve Bruce this week, is charged with attempting to lift the Black Cats up from their current position of 17th in the table.

And the Ulsterman is keen to discover whether Gyan could be recalled, the Ghana international having scored ten goals in 34 Premier League appearances in his debut season in England.

"It's absolutely something that I'll address," O'Neill said of the possibility of recalling Gyan.

"I have to talk to Niall [Quinn] about exactly where we stand on that. His position will definitely be looked at.

"He started off brilliantly, then things tapered away a little bit, so the potential is there. I don't know the lad at all, but I will have a look at it."
