Ghanaian forward Jordan Ayew has joined English Premier League club Crystal Palace on a three-year deal subject to international clearance.

Ayew, 27, played for Palace last season on loan from Championship club Swansea City making 20 appearances in the Premier League. In total, he has made 100 Premier League appearances and scored 16 goals.

Ayew represented Ghana at the 2019 Total Africa Cup of Nations in Egypt playing four games and scoring two goals.

Ayew expressed his delight at his return to Selhurst Park.

“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,” Ayew said.

“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,” manager Roy Hodgson said.

Andre Ayew, who is Jordan’s older brother and Swansea City’s record signing, is still contracted to the Welsh club for another two years but spent the 2018-19 season on loan at Turkish side Fenerbahce.
