Ghana attacker Jordan Ayew has left French giants Olympique Marseille to sign for fellow Ligue 1 side Lorient FC, GHANAsoccernet.com can exclusively confirm. 

The 22-year-old has penned a deal that could keep him at the Stade Yves Allainmat – Le Moustoir until 2018.

Jordan opted to join Lorient after manager Sylvain Ripoll assured him he has a place for him in his squad for the upcoming season.

A host of clubs including German pair Schalke 04 and Borussia Monchengladbach, West Bromwich Albion and Hull City were all linked with a move for the attacker who played for Ghana at the 2014 World Cup.

However, Lorient landed him after successfully reaching a deal for with Marseille who declared the player surplus to requirement.

Jordan, third son of African football legend – Abedi Pele, spent six and half seasons at Marseille and scored 14 league goals in 112 appearances.

However, a loan spell at Sochaux last season saw him grab five Ligue 1 goals in 17 outings.

    Good for you boy. Now pls don’t diss appoint and learn to pass the ball when you need to, especially when someone has more chance to score than you in the penalty box.

    Jordan this could be you last chance to shine. As much as you want to score goals as a striker please learn when to pass and when to shoot and with your temperament, pace and strength you can become a complete striker.

    GSN,stop lying,lorient rather saved Jordan,because all the. Clubs refused him. Although Lorient is a weak team, they have wasted their money on Jordan.No wonder GSN could not disclose the amount involved.What a cheap club?.

    Fish is right,after all Bordeaux ruled out of signing him,and that is an evidence that it was the clubs that rejected Jordan.Some Ghanaians don’t like face the truth.
