Ghana striker Jordan Ayew has pledged his long-term future at French club Olympique Marseille – hinting he could end his career at the club.
The 21-year-old has figured prominently this season for the Ligue 1 giants this season after being on the peripheral of the first team since making his debut in 2009.
The youngest son of Ghana legend Abedi Pele has been linked with loan moves to the English Premier League – where Reading and QPR has been most talked of.
But these reported moves have since not materialized.
The Ghana international now insists he is happy to have a prolonged future at the French club and could even end up staying put with Marseille until the end of his international career.
“I have no intention of leaving and I will be here next year,” he said.
“I am only 21 and players who are 28 dream of playing for OM. As for me, I am very happy here and I could finish my career at Marseille.
“I feel at home, the club has helped me enormously – I want to pay them back.”
Jordan plays alongside his brother, Andre at the French club that saw enormous success during the time his father, Abedi was with the club.
The 21-year-old has rose through the youth ranks to become a regular first team player at OM.
