Ghana striker Jordan Ayew has been left out of the squad list for Crystal Palace for the 2018/19 season even though he joined the team before the transfer deadline, has revealed.

The English Premier League excluded the striker from the final squad of the teams as it released the full squads for all the teams in the English top-flight on Wednesday.

Ayew met all the conditions needed for his loan move from Swansea City to be approved by all the football authorities in England on deadline day.

He was unveiled by the club the following day with his father and agent Abedi Pele in attendance which suggests all was good and sound.

However, in a post on its official website, on Wednesday, the English Premier League released all the squad lists of the team with Ayew not registered among Palace's 25-man squad list.

No official explanation has yet been given by Palace or the Premier League but Ayew's exclusion from the team's squad for the opening weekend win over Fulham is now raising eyebrows.

Now observers think there were some hidden problems over Ayew's registration which might have resulted in his exclusion from the opening day squad as he is a top player for the team.

Ayew scored 11 goals in 44 appearances for Swansea City before securing the late loan move to London to play for Palace.
