Crystal Palace have signed Ghanaian striker Jordan Ayew from Swansea City on a three year deal for an undisclosed fee.

Ayew, 27, becomes Palace’s second signing of the summer following the acquisition of Nottingham Forrest goalkeeper Stephen Henderson on a free transfer.

The forward endured a season-long loan spell at Selhurst Park last season where he made 20 appearances and scored one goal.

Despite not hitting prolific form at Palace last season, Ayew returns to South London off the back of a remarkable African Cup of Nations for Ghana, where he scored two goals in four matches to help his side reach the round of 16.

“I am very happy. I really enjoyed myself last season,” Ayew told the club’s official website.

“I enjoyed the stadium, the fans, the boys - they were really good to me - everything here was positive and that's why I decided to continue with Crystal Palace.”

Crystal Palace’s transfer business so far this summer has surrounded the departures of key players as Aaron Wan-Bissaka completed a move to Manchester United and Wilfred Zaha has been a subject of two rejected bids from Arsenal.

However, Eagles manager Roy Hodgson said: "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.”
