Premier League honors Andre Ayew

Black Stars captain, Andre Dede Ayew, has been honoured with a plaque by the English Premier League after the veteran forward reached a century of appearances in the league.

The 33-year-old, who plies his trade with Nottingham Forest, played in the league for West Ham and Swansea City over a combined period of three seasons before joining Nottingham earlier this season.

With Forest, Dede has made 12 appearances in the 2022-2023 season after making 46 appearances at Swansea and 43 appearances for West Ham respectively.

He has scored 21 goals in the EPL but missed a big chance to add to his tally this season when he squandered a penalty kick attempt against Tottenham.

Andre Ayew made a shock move to Forest on a free transfer after terminating his deal with Qatari side Al Sadd following Ghana’s run at the 2022 FIFA World Cup in Qatar.

He joins Michael Essien and Daniel Amartey as Ghanaian players with at least 100 appearances in the EPL. Ayew has spent majority of his career in the French Ligue 1 playing for the likes of Marseille and FC Lorient.

Ayew’s Nottingham Forest teammate Serge Aurier was also honoured after reaching the century mark for appearances.
