Ghanaian forward, Jordan Ayew has extended his contract at Crystal Palace following an impressive start to the 2023/24 season.

The Crystal Palace August Player of the Month was rewarded a new contract, which sees him extend his stay at Selhurst Park until 2025.

Ayew netted his first goal of the campaign in Palace's 2-1 defeat to league leaders Tottenham Hotspurs last Friday. The 31-year-old assisted goals in the matches against Sheffield United, Brentford and Plymouth Argyle.

“It feels great. I think everyone knows how much I love this club. I feel immense pride every time I put on the Palace shirt; this club is my home, and signing a new contract shows that," Ayew told Crystal Palace's official website.
"Everything about Crystal Palace is special – the fans especially. They are our 12th man. There isn't a fanbase as passionate and supportive as ours in the league; you are always with us from the first minute until the end."

The versatile forward has made over 180 appearances for the Eagles since joining the club from Swansea City in 2018, per transfermarkt.

Meanwhile, Crystal Palace chairman, Steve Parish praised the striker for his dedication to the club.

“Jordan is a fantastic professional, on and off the pitch. His efforts are never less than 100%, and as a result, he provides an outstanding example to his teammates day in, day out," he said.
"I am delighted to see him extend his spell in red and blue yet again.”

Jordan Ayew unimpressed with EA FC rating

Earlier, Sports Brief reported that Ghanaian forward, Jordan Ayew was surprised by his rating on EA FC as he hilariously called out his other teammates for scoring the same mark.

Ayew had an overall score of 74, the same as teammates Will Hughes and Chris Richards.

The Black Stars forward was unhappy with the rating and feels he should have had a better mark, making him the latest player to react against EA FC's scores.
