BREAKING: Jordan Ayew completes Villa switch


Striker joins from Lorient

Aston Villa Football Club have announced the signing of Jordan Ayew from French side Lorient.

The 23-year-old has agreed to a five-year deal after the two clubs agreed an undisclosed fee for the striker, who will now link up with his new teammates for the first team.

Benteke Replacement

Ayew is seen as a potential replacement for Christian Benteke, who joined Liverpool last week.

However, with plenty of money left over from the £32.4million transfer, Tim Sherwood is expected to add more new faces in the next few weeks.

Ayew becomes the third player to join Villa from a Ligue 1 side, joining Jordan Amavi and Idrissa Gueye.

After the announcement broke, Sherwood spoke to the club’s official website and revealed his delight at the deal.


Sherwood said: “I’m really pleased to bring Jordan to the football club.

“He is a fantastic young player who is perfectly suited to the Premier League.”
