Crystal Palace sign Jordan Ayew from Swansea


Crystal Palace have completed the signing of Ghana’s Black Stars forward Jordan Ayew from Swansea on a permanent deal, the Premier League club said.

The 27-year-old penned a three-year contract with the Eagles, for a fee in the region of £2.5 million ($3.1 million).

Ayew, who spent last season on loan at Selhurst Park managed only a goal in his 20 Premier League appearances.

He expressed his desire to play for the club again in the 2019/20 season campaign.

“I am very happy, I really enjoyed myself last season,” he told

“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.”

The Eagles’ coach Roy Hodgson said Ayew “certainly played his part in the club securing its highest-ever Premier League points tally in the last campaign”.

Ayew who was involved in Ghana’s Total Africa Cup of Nations campaign in Ghana only managed to net twice.

He becomes Palace’s second signing after goalkeeper Stephen Henderson from Nottingham Forest.

Palace have already lost right-back Aaron Wan-Bissaka to Manchester United and are on the brink of losing their star forward Wilfried Zaha who has been heavily linked with a move to Emirates and recently Everton’s Goodison Park.
