Andre Ayew, the 33-year-old Captain of Ghana's senior national football team, the Black Stars, has officially secured a move to French side Le Havre as a free agent for the remainder of the 2023/24 season.
The Black Stars' forward had engaged in negotiations with the French club over the past months, turning down offers from other top European sides vying for his signature.
Ayew's recent absence from active club football has raised concerns, especially during Ghana's preparations for upcoming competitions.
His last club appearance was during the 2022/23 Premier League season, where he featured in 13 games for Nottingham Forest, also as a free agent.
Notably, Ayew enjoyed a successful stint from 2007 to 2015, scoring 44 goals in 160 appearances for Olympique Marseille. During this period, he secured two French Ligue Cup titles.
Now, with his move to Le Havre, currently positioned sixth on the table, Ayew aims to make significant contributions to the team's success.
Despite his club-level hiatus, Ayew is set to lead the Black Stars in the 2026 World Cup qualifiers and the Africa Cup of Nations.
His experience and leadership qualities are anticipated to be crucial assets for Ghana in these upcoming prestigious competitions.
