Ghana striker Jordan Ayew’s Nice move collapses

Posted On Tuesday, 4th September 2012

Jordan Ayew's loan move to Nice fell through at the last minute

Ghana striker Jordan Ayew’s move to French side Nice has collapsed after the club’s coach advised against the signing of the Marseille attacker.

Marseille were negotiating with Nice to sign the youngster on a season-long loan deal on Tuesday.

The two sides reached a deal for the signing of the son of the ex-Ghana captain Abedi Pele but Nice coach Claude Puel asked the club not to sign the Black Stars striker.

“Jordan Ayew will not come to Nice,” Nice president Jean-Pierre Rivère said.

“We have a coach (Claude Puel) who is well involved in the decision to sign this player. The coach looks at the sporting and financial aspect of the deal. We must trust him.

“He said that Jordan is not a priority. He has other plans for the future, especially for the winter transfer window.

“We reached an agreement with Marseille financially over the deal but the final decision is from the technical team. There is no other striker in sight.”

Reading and fellow Ligue 1 club Brest were both reported to be tracking the 20-year-old striker.

Ayew joined Marseille as a trainee in 2006 and broke into the first XI last season, scoring seven goals in 34 appearances for the club.

However, the player is not thought to be in the plans of new Marseille boss Elie Baup and Ayew is wants to move onto new pastures.

Ayew, who possesses power and pace, wanted to get more playing time with Nice

The youngster is under contract with Marseille until June 2015.

The French transfer window closed on Tuesday at midnight.

He has so far made three appearances for Marseille this season.
