Black Stars captain Andre Ayew joins Nottingham Forest
Andre Ayew has returned to the English Premier League by joining Nottingham Forest as a free agent after parting ways with Qatari champions Al Sadd.
The Ghana Black Stars captain, who will wear the shirt number 42 said: “It’s a great feeling to sign for Nottingham Forest.
“I know how big the club is and I know how much the club means to the city and the fanbase. It’s always been difficult whenever I’ve played against Forest and at The City Ground and I love the stadium.
“Steve Cooper is someone who knows me very well and knows how to work with me both on and off the pitch. We have a strong relationship, he’s a special coach and a special human being and someone who I really look up to.”
“I know what I can bring to the team, I’m ready to give my all and make sure that we are able to stay in the Premier League.”
Ayew is Forest’s 29th signing since their return to the Premier League.
The former Swansea and West Ham player scored 21 goals in 89 Premier League games for both clubs.
He has spent the last one and a half years playing in Qatar. Ayew had a very impressive goalscoring record for them, scoring 22 goals in 39 appearances. Ayew won the domestic double in his first season.
