Jordan Ayew’s £12 million Aston Villa bid accepted
Aston Villa have had a bid of £12m accepted by Lorient for striker Jordan Ayew, according to Sky sources.
The Ghana international is expected to arrive in Birmingham in the next 24 hours for further talks and a medical.
The former Marseille striker will be a direct replacement for Christian Benteke who moved to Liverpool for £32.5m earlier this week.
Ayew follows elder brother, Dede who joined Swansea earlier this summer to the English Premier League after the duo previously played together at Marseille where they came through the academy ranks.
