Ghanaian forward Jordan Ayew has extended his contract until June 2025 with Premier League side Crystal Palace on Wednesday.
The 32-year’s old initial contract was due to expire next year but his performances have convinced Palace officials to hand him a new one.
“Jordan Ayew has signed a new contract extension with Crystal Palace, committing his future to the club until June 2025”, CPFC statement reads.
Speaking to the club’s media department after penning the deal, the Black Star who has 1 goal and 3 assists in 12 appearances across all competitions this season expressed delight and is eager to continue donning the Eagles jersey.
“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”, he said.
“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.
“I’d like to thank the manager – I have so much respect for Roy [Hodgson], he’s been so good to me – and Steve Parish and Dougie Freedman. They’re always there when you need them. Not forgetting all of staff at the club; we all have a great bond here.
“I hope I can help the club push on up the league. We have a good squad and the belief to achieve something special. I will be giving 100% every week to make sure we go on a good run and start climbing the table.”
