English Premier League side, Crystal Palace, has confirmed striker Jordan Ayew has agreed to a one-year extension.

Ayew, whose contract was set to run out at the end of this month, agreed with the club to activate the one-year extension, which means the striker stays with the club for the upcoming 2022/23 season.

The 30-year-old joined Crystal Palace on loan for the 2018–19 season from Swansea but later made the move permanent with a £2.5m transfer fee on a three-year deal.

The former Aston Villa man has enjoyed a great stay at Palace during his three seasons with the London club, making 133 appearances and scoring 15 goals.

Palace also confirmed a one-year extension had been met with James McArthur, James Tomkins, and Nathaniel Clyne.

“It remains of pivotal importance to get the right balance of youth and experience in any Premier League squad,” Palace chairman Steve Parish in his response to the new agreements.

“I’m delighted that we’ve been able to ensure that these long-standing and experienced players in Jordan, Nathaniel, James, and James remain with us for the upcoming campaign.

“Each of them played an enormous role in the progress we’ve all enjoyed in the last year, and we very much expect similar contributions for the season ahead,” he added.

Ayew ended the 2021-22 season with three goals and three assists in 31 Premier League matches.

He is currently with the Black Stars preparing for the Kirin Cup in Japan.
