Ghana striker Jordan Ayew has now been included in the squad list for Crystal Palace for the 2018/19 season in time for Monday night's clash with Liverpool.

Ayew, son of Ghana legend Abedi Pele, was excluded from the side's list released by the Premier League last week even though he joined the team before the transfer deadline.

With the striker named on the bench for his debut against Liverpool, the Premier League have now updated their records with Ayew included in the Palace squad.

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 raised eyebrows. Now the record has been updated and it looked like a hurriedly arranged update the Ghana star was now wearing the shirt of Palace but the jersey of his former team Swansea City.

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