Ayew Ready to Turn a Premier League Page

Ghana and Olympique Marseille's attacking midfielder Andre Ayew is ready to join a premier league club after ten years in the French Ligue 1.
Ayew, 25, has been linked with hosts of Premiership side (Liverpool, Newcastle, Swansea, Tottenham Spurs) in recent years, but a switch to the English Premier League has now become imminent as Marseille is unable to meet his wages.
"I am going to leave the club and it is a page turned, the son of African legend, Abedi Pele said.
"The President has spoken thus everything has been brought out into the open more or less," he added.
Andre Ayew has scored 10 goals from 27 league appearances this season wished to stay a bit long at the club that nurtured him, but both parties could not fall on the same line of symmetry.
"We tried to find a solution which would enable me to stay for both parties it was complicated, whether it be for sporting or financial reasons.
"Also the club cannot offer me the same salary that I'm on at the moment," Ayew said.
Club President Vincent Labrune threw in the towel on Wednesday when he said, "We cannot keep Ayew. He is a very important player for Marseille but we cannot offer him the sums that the English clubs can."
"Unfortunately, he is going to leave the club and we hope he enjoys the great career, he deserves in England or elsewhere"' the President told The Independent.
