Aston Villa fans react on Twitter as Ghana international Jordan Ayew completes transfer

Aston Villa have signed forward Jordan Ayew from Lorient.

As seen above, Aston Villa have confirmed the signing of Lorient striker Jordan Ayew, with the forward becoming the latest of Villa's summer arrivals.

Manager Tim Sherwood has already brought in the likes of Mark Bunn, Micah Richards, Jordan Amavi, Idrissa Gueye and Scott Sinclair this summer, and Ayew now joins them.

The 23-year-old forward left Marseille for first team football with Lorient a year ago, and his decision paid dividends as he hit 13 goals in 28 games last season.

However, the Ghanaian international is now on the move again, joining Villa following the sale of Christian Benteke to Liverpool last week.

Ayew will be expected to fill the void left by Benteke, and he intriguingly follows his brother Andre - who plays for Swansea City - to the Premier League.

Fans have been reacting to the deal throughout the day, with many delighted to see Villa put their faith in a young, up-and-coming striker who flourished last season.

Others are concerned about whether Ayew can score enough goals to replace Benteke, with the transition from French to English football a difficult one for many in recent years.

Here are some of the reactions from Aston Villa fans on Twitter after Ayew completed his move from Lorient to Villa Park...
