Qatari giants Al Sadd have officially unveiled Andre Ayew.

Ayew has signed a two-year deal with an option to extend for another year.

The midfielder will be eager to continue where he left off last season with Swansea City in the English Championship. Ayew finished as the club’s top goal scorer with 17 goals to his name in the regular season.

He joined Swansea for a second spell in January 2018 as the club sought to win a relegation fight.

After several attempts to get the club promoted back to the Premier League, Ayew opted against renewing his contract with the Swans last month.

Several clubs in the Premier League and around Europe were reportedly interested in the 31-year-old, but he decided to move to the Asian side, who have offered him a bumper deal. The former Olympique Marseille star will earn around $200, 000 (R2.9-million) per week.

Ayew’s father Abedi Pele played for Al Sadd during his playing days and his son ‘Dede’ is now following in his great father’s footsteps.

It’s been an eventful year for Ayew who was named as the captain of the Ghana national team after the removal of Asamoah Gyan.

He helped the Black Stars qualify for the 2021 Africa Cup of Nations in Cameroon and also helped Swansea reach the final of the promotion play-offs, but the Jack Army lost to Brentford who got prompted.
