Ghana star Andre Ayew completes move to Qatari champions Al Sadd

Black Stars captain, Andre Ayew, has completed a move to Qatari top-flight club Al Sadd after passing mandatory medical in Doha.

Ayew, who is a free agent after leaving English Championship side, Swansea City, signed a two-year contract with an option for an additional year and is reported to earn $220,000 per month.

He will wear the Number 24 jersey at his new club.

Prior to the completion of the move on Thursday, Al Sadd had initially announced on Twitter that they had reached an agreement to sign the Ghanaian despite interest from some top European clubs.

The unveiling video had Andre’s father Abedi Ayew Pele chronicling his career which took him from RTU to Al Sadd before he moved to Europe.

At the end of the video, Andre Ayew said he was at Al Sadd to “continue his father’s legacy and win more titles”.

At Al Sadd, Ayew is expected to dominate Qatar as well as make the club a strong force in the Asian Champions League.

He will have the opportunity to tap into the knowledge of Spain and Barcelona legend Xavi Hernandez. The World Cup and multiple Champions League winner has been head coach of Al Sadd since he hanged his boots in 2019.
