Sunderland striker Asamoah Gyan says he is still waiting for a call from manager Martin O'Neill over his return to the Stadium of Light.
Gyan is on loan at UAE Pro League side Al Ain but his stay ends at the end of the season this month.
The lack of communication between the 26-year-old and the Premier League club has put his future in serious doubt.
A delegation from the Wearside were sent to Al Ain to check on Gyan's progress but the Ghana starÂ revealed he is still waiting for O'Neill's call.
"I havenâ€™t spoken to anybody (from Sunderland) since Iâ€™ve been here,â€ Gyan told a press conference on Tuesday.
"I heard the manager wanted to call me, I waited for his call but no call cameâ€¦ I am still here."
Gyan has had a successful loan spell having rattled in 19 goals to lead the scorers chart with two matches remaining.
