Jordan Ayew hope for Aston Villa as Southampton target Jordan Amavi

Sport | Published:

Aston Villa striker Jordan Ayew is in 'no rush' to leave the club despite relegation to the Championship.

In an interview in his homeland with a Ghanaian TV station, the 24-year-old striker was quoted as saying he wants to help the club back into the Premier League.

"I'm in no rush to leave Aston Villa. I am happy to be there though we were relegated," he told GHone TV.

"I am happy at Villa and I don't want to rush. They need me and I want to help them to qualify back to the Premier League.

"I was with the team in the Premiership and I will play with them in the Championship."

Meanwhile, £10million defender Jordan Amavi has been linked with Southampton in a possible reunion with former his boss Claude Puel. Puel, who brought left-back Amavi into senior football with Nice, is reportedly keen to make the 22-year-old one of his first captures. Ex-Villa caretaker boss Eric Black has joined as Puel's assistant.
