Crystal Palace striker, Jordan Ayew has stated that he remains happy at Selhurst Park amid speculation that the player could seek a move away from the club.
Following a stunning season in which he finished as Palace’s top scorer with nine goals, and was named the side’s Player of the Season, a number of pundits have suggested that Ayew could earn himself a move to a bigger club.
However, the Black Stars striker says he remains committed to the club and is already looking towards the new campaign with Palace.
“I’m a Crystal Palace player, I’m happy here. My family is also happy here. Everything is in Palace’s hands. I’m a very ambitious player but I intend to give my best for Palace this season,” Jordan said in an interview on Friday.
Jordan Ayew’s nine goals in the Premier League this season took him clear of former Leeds Utd player Anthony Yeboah as Ghana’s leading scorer in Premier League history.
He also won three awards at Palace’s end-of-season event including Fans’ Player of The Season, Players’ Player of the Season and Goal of the Season.
Palace finished in 14th place last season, 10 points clear of the relegation zone.
The final spot on the league table was greatly aided by a three-game winning run before the break caused by the COVID-19 pandemic.
After the break and a win over Bournemouth, Palace then failed to win any of their final 8 matches.
Jordan said that despite a tough end to the season, Palace’s survival ensured that the campaign would be seen as a good one at the club that they can build on next season.
“Overall, it was a good season. The Target was to stay in the Premier League and we managed to do that. [The break from] COVID-19 didn’t help us like it did for other teams but we’re getting ready for next season,” he added.
Palace start the new campaign at home to Southampton on September 12.
