The former Swans influential forward will arrive in the Gulf region on Thursday ahead of a bumper deal with Xavi’s side
Ghana captain Andre Dede Ayew will sign a reported three-year deal with Qatari giants Al Sadd after he passes medical checks, AshesGyamera.com understands.
The 31-year-old will join Sadd as a free agent after opting not to renew his contract with Welsh giants Swansea City since the club failed to qualify to play in next season’s Premier League.
Despite being linked to several clubs in Europe, including some EPL sides like Crystal Palace, Ayew is believed to have accepted an offer from Al Sadd after a telephone call from former Barcelona superstar Xavi, who currently handles the club as the head coach.
Ayew, who boasts of 91 international appearance for Ghana and has netted 19 goals, scored 16 goals in 46 matches for Swansea and led the Welsh side to the Championship play off final only to lose to Brentford.
Ayew began his career in France with Olympique Marseille before he arrived in England to play for Swansea and West Ham United. He also spent some short time in Turkey on loan at Fernabache.
