There’s been a new development in Newcastle’s pursuit of Andre Ayew of Marseilles, and it seems the south of France club have thrown in the towel and seem to have no chance of now signing the player.
Andre Ayew – one step closer
Andre’s contract runs out in the summer at which tome he will become a free agent which is why a number of clubs are after him.
Marseilles’ President Jose Anigo has confirmed he will leave the club in the summer when his current contract runs out, and this is what he has told the French media:
“Andre Ayew is a confirmation I was able to make from my start here,” “I regret he will leave. He will not extend the contract, so I feel he will go.”
There was news last week that Newcastle were one of the clubs who have offered the Ghanaian a new contract, but the Magpies will face still some tough competition.
Napoli, Inter-Milan, Borussia Dortmund, Wolfsburg and Roma have all been closely linked with the player – but he has said he wants to play in England, and that gives Newcastle some hope they could land their target in the summer.
The 25 year-old would be an excellent acquisition for the Magpies if we can get him, and in his time at Marseilles he has played 198 games with 56 goals and 23 assists for them over the last five seasons.
Andre usually plays out on the wing but can also play up front as a striker or a withdrawn striker.
It would be great if Newcastle can get an early signing like Andre in the summer.
