Jordan Ayew Joins Crystal Palace On A 3-Year Deal

on

Ghanaian international Jordan Ayew has sealed a three year deal with English Premier League side, Crystal Palace.

The 27-year-old, who made 20 appearances (including 14 starts) in the Premier League for Roy Hodgson’s side, returns to Palace off the back of an impressive Africa Cup of Nations tournament, where he notched two goals in Ghana’s four games in the competition – as well as a successful penalty in his side’s shoot-out defeat to Tunisia in the last round of 16.

Upon completing his transfer to Palace, Ayew revealed his excitement at being back in red and blue ahead of the 2019/20 season, which begins on August 10 with the Eagles’ Premier League opener with Everton.

Ayew, who has exactly 100 Premier League appearances and 16 goals under his belt, said: “I am very happy [to have returned]. I really enjoyed myself last season.

“I enjoyed the stadium, the fans, the boys – they were really good to me – everything here was positive and that’s why I decided to continue with Crystal Palace.”

Manager Roy Hodgson said: “We are delighted to secure Jordan’s services for another three seasons at Crystal Palace.

He has proved himself as a dedicated and hard-working member of the squad, and certainly played his part in the club securing its highest ever Premier League points tally in the last campaign.”
