Sky claim that Aston Villa have made a £12m bid accepted for the Lorient forward Jordan Ayew.

The Ghana international has just enjoyed his breakthrough season in France, scoring 13 goals in 28 games for Llorient having signed for them last summer.

Ayew began his career at Marseille where he played alongside his brother Andre. The 23-year old spent much of his time at Marseille playing in wide positions but has taken centre stage at Llorient.

Now he looks set to sign for Villa as they look to replace Christian Benteke. Here’s the man in action.
