Andre Dede Ayew has become West Ham United’s most expensive player after completing a move on Monday. The Ghanaian international joined the Hammers for £20.5m. The 26-year-old joins the Hammers on a three-year contract, with an additional two-year option, after a wonderful debut Premier League season with Swansea City.
He said: “I am very proud and happy to be at this magnificent Club. I am happy to be playing for these fans and I hope to make the people very happy here.
“The Club have a lot of ambition and have a great manager. They want to become a bigger Club every year and with the new Stadium and a new training ground, you can feel they are moving onto another level and I want to be part of this project.”
“I want to train hard, do my job and show that I deserve to play for West Ham United. I want to give back to the manager and the fans the confidence they are showing me.”
Ayew, who played alongside Dimitri Payet at Marseille before joining Swansea on a free transfer last year, becomes West Ham’s sixth signing of the summer as they prepare for their opening campaign at the London Stadium.
