West Ham sign Andre Ayew for club record £20.5m

English Premier League side West Ham United have completed the signing of Ghana international Andre Ayew.

Andre Ayew joined Swansea City last summer as a free agent and made a massive impact with 12 goals and two assists in 34 games in all competitions for the Welsh club.

West Ham United finished last season in 7th and will be playing in the UEFA Europa League this season.

Slaven Bilic had bids for Carlos Bacca, Alexandre Lacazette and Michy Batshuayi all rejected before falling to a player who knows the English Premier League very well in Ayew.

The Ghana international captained the Black Satellites to win Ghana’s and Africa’s only FIFA U-20 World Cup in 2009 and played very well for his country in the 2010 World Cup in Brazil.


He has since been a key member of his national team’s set-up and is currently the deputy skipper of the Black Stars.
