Deputy Black Stars captain, Andre Ayew, has joined West Ham United for a club record fee of £20.5million.

The former Swansea City player joined the Hammers on a three-year contract, with an additional two-year option.

“I am very proud and happy to be at this magnificent club. I am happy to be playing for these fans and I hope to make the people very happy here,” Ayew said after signing the contract.

“The club have a lot of ambition and have a great manager. They want to become a bigger club every year and with the new stadium and a new training ground, you can feel they are moving onto another level and I want to be part of this project. I want to train hard, do my job, and show that I deserve to play for West Ham United. I want to give back to the manager and the fans the confidence they are showing me.”

Ayew joined the English Premier League last season when he signed for Swansea on a free transfer from Marseille in June 2015.

He scored 12 goals in his first season.
