- Qatari side Al Sadd SC have confirmed reaching an agreement to sign Ghana Black Stars skipper Andre Ayew.
- The Ghanian forward departed Swansea City after his contract expires last month. He played in the Swansea Championship play-off final 2-0 defeat against Brentford.
“Al Sadd have reached an agreement to sign Ghanaian star Andre Ayew. The player will arrive in Doha in the morning to complete the routine procedures, followed by the signing of the contract and the official announcement,” the club said in a statement.
Ayew, 31, featured in 106 games and scored 35 goals since rejoining Swansea from West Ham for an initial £18m in January 2018, will be joining the 7th club of his illustrious career, which has seen him play in France, England and Turkey.
He first joined Swansea on a free transfer from Marseille in 2015, and after being impressive in his first top-flight season with 12 goals in 35 appearances, he joined West Ham for £20.5m.
He returned 18 months later in what remains a club-record deal but could not save Swansea from Premier League relegation.
Ayew spent the following season on loan at Fenerbahce but came back to Swansea in 2019 and has ended the last two campaigns as boss Steve Cooper’s leading scorer with 16 goals.
