    West Ham's moving up, I want in: Newcomer Ayew


    GHANA midfielder Andre Ayew has joined West Ham United on a club-record three-year deal from Premier League rivals Swansea, the London outfit said on Monday.

    The former Marseille winger and son of one-time African player of the year Adebi Pele joined the Hammers for £20.5million (S$35.9 million).

    The 26-year-old told West Ham's website: "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 on to another level and I want to be part of this project," he said.

    Ayew scored 60 times in over 200 appearances at French outfit Marseille before joining Swansea last season.

    Playing a key role in their 2014 World Cup campaign, he has extensive international experience with Ghana.
