He helped Roda JC defeat Emmen and NAC Breda in the 2015 Dutch play-offs to gain promotion to the Eredivisie a year after getting relegated. Gyasi played in a further 21 games for Roda in the Dutch first division before leaving the Netherlands for the first time to move to then-first-division side Aalesund FK in Norway.
