Villa to cash in on Jordan Ayew
Aston Villa are understood to be preparing for life in the Championship and have earmarked players for the exit door, including star man Jordan Ayew.
Ayew is one of the club’s biggest earners—could be set for an exit from Villa Park only six months after he moved to the Midlands.
The Ghana forward’s performances have drawn applause but Villa are unconvinced either that Ayew would want to play in the Championship, or that he’s be cut out to help the Villains make a swift return to the top flight, and have thus earmarked him as an expensive luxury that can be cut loose.
Jordan Ayew scored 12 goals in Ligue 1 last season as FC Lorient beat the drop, but it with Remi Garde’s side currently sitting rock bottom of the EPL with only eight points from 20 matches, relegation looks highly likely.
LOSC Lille are understood to be admirers of Jordan while Everton, Southampton and Watford are all believed to be monitoring the five-goal forward’s progress.
