Ayew Completes Palace Switch

Ayew Completes Palace Switch

Crystal Palace boss Roy Hodgson says he is delighted to have got the permanent signing of striker Jordan Ayew over the line after he signed a three-year deal. The former Swansea striker enjoyed a season-long loan at the club last term, which included 14 starts in the Premier League, and he was keen to turn the move into a full- time switch from the Swans.

He has now signed a three-year deal with the Eagles and is looking forward to his new start. The deal is still subject to international clearance, but that should not be a problem. Ayew said: “I am very happy [to have returned]. I really enjoyed myself last season.”

Hodgson is delighted to have made his second signing of the summer following the capture of keeper Stephen Henderson on a free, and he told the club’s website: “We are delighted to secure Jordan’s services for another three seasons at Crystal Palace. “He has proved himself as a dedicated and hard-working member of the squad, and certainly played his part in the club securing its highest-ever Premier League points tally in the last campaign.”
