After his move was made official on Thursday, the Black Stars captain Andre Ayew on his official page congratulated his brother and wished him well ahead of the new season

“Congrats lil bro. Keep the fire burning love you have a great season”

Palace coach Roy Hodgson described Ghana International, Jordan Ayew, as a “dedicated and hard-working” player, after the club permanently secured the striker’s services for the next three years.
