Gyan signs for Rennes

Udinese's Ghanaian striker Asamoah Gyan has signed a four-year deal with French first division club Rennes, the buying club's website said on Friday.

The details of the deal have yet to announced, but press reports in Italy indicate it could be in the region of 8 million euro (13 million dollars).

Gyan, 22, went down in the history books in 2006 when he became the first Ghanaian to score a goal at the FIFA World Cup™ finals in Germany.
