Aston Villa have completed the signing of Black Stars player Jordan Ayew.
The 5-year deal was officially reached today to pave way for Jordan who is joining the English club from French side Lorient.
Manager Tim 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.”
Ayew completed his medical at Bodymoor Heath Monday morning before meeting his new team-mates for the first time.
The move also means he gets to reunite with his brother Dede Ayew, who has also signed for Swansea City.
The 23-year-old became Villa’s obvious replacement for Christian Benteke, when the latter left to Liverpool for some 32.5 million Pounds.
Jordan’s move should also open a new chapter for Villa, who are hoping to sign Togolese star Emmanuel Adebayor on permanent basis.
Ray Wilkins, Villa Assistant Manager told a Brazilian network the possibility Adebayor could switch was high:
“I think there is.
“I can only talk for myself, but I’m hoping there is because when Adebayor wants to play he is extremely effective.
“He knows the Premier League inside out, so he would be a good addition for us.”
