Photos: Jordan Ayew poses in Aston Villa shirt, shares joke with Tim Sherwood

Jordan Ayew has joined Premier League outfit Aston Villa from Ligue 1 club Lorient.

Aston Villa have completed the signing of striker Jordan Ayew from French club Lorient.

The Ghana international has joined the Villans on a five-year contract and will be expected to be successful at Villa Park.

The 23-year-old put pen to paper earlier today, and it seems that Villa manager Tim Sherwood is doing his best to make him feel welcomed, as shown in the photo below.

Ayew is the latest player to move to Villa this summer and is the third from Ligue 1 to join the Premier League outfit since the end of the 2014-15 season after Jordan Amavi and Idrissa Gueye.

The former Marseille man will be expected to add something extra to Villa’s attack, although he is not a very prolific striker.

Last season, the 23-year-old scored 12 goals and created 34 chances in 31 Ligue 1 appearances for Marseille.

Ayew had a pass accuracy of 80% and a shot accuracy of 59%, and won 69 headers, 37 dribbles and tackles.
