Last updated

Aston Villa have had a £12 million bid accepted for Ghana forward Jordan Ayew, it is believed.


The 23-year-old, who is the brother of Swansea City forward Andre Ayew, scored 13 goals in all competitions for Lorient last season.

Villa are on the hunt for attacking reinforcements after selling star striker Christian Benteke to Liverpool for £32.5million.

They have previously been linked with Emmanuel Adebayor but it now believed Ayew is the number one target for boss Tim Sherwood.

Speculation has surrounded Ayew's future all summer with fellow French side Lille also believed to keen on the front man.
