Jordan Ayew signs for FC Lorient

Ghanaian 22 years old soccer international Jordan Ayew has signed a four year contact with French Ligue 1 side FC Lorient. The financial details of the contract is undisclosed as of yet.

The striker who was on a six-month loan from Olympique Marseille to FC Sochaux last season is relishing the prospect of regular first team appearance for his new side.

He would be a welcome addition to Christian Gourcuff’s FC Lorient who finished 8th in last season’s French Ligue 1 campaign.

Jordan Ayew, who is the son of Ghana’s beloved soccer legend Abdei Pele, had expressed in recent years his growing dissatisfaction with his lack of first team appearance at Olympique Marseille, where he was teammates with his brother Andre Ayew. Who was just recently offered to AC Milan.

In February of this year, he was quoted to have expressed a desire to return to Marseille at the end of his loan spell to FC Lorient who incidentally finished 18th on the French Ligue 1 this past season. While on loan he scored 5 goals in 17 appearances for FC Sochaux

The striker who joins FC Lorient after 8 years of hoisting the Marseille flag, has heaped numerous accolades on his new club ascribing it as being ” fantastic, ambitious, having great structure and being progressive” during a recent interview with British Broadcasting Corporation (BBC) Sport.

Jordan Ayew recently featured for Ghana during its World Cup Campaign in Brazil, where he gained some infamy when he chose to shoot at goal rather than pass to wide open Asamoah Gyan during Ghana’s group stage match versus Germany.

The Ghanaian senior nation team player who has a voracious appetite for shooting at goal has the capability to emerge as one of the top scorers in the French Ligue 1 this season.
