AS Saint-Etienne coach Christophe Galtier has ruled out signing Ghana World Cup striker Jordan Ayew.

According to the reports, the 47-year-old does not want to recruit any player who will be leaving for the Africa Cup of Nations next January in Morocco.

The former Marseille defender has decided to sign French striker Kevin Monnet-Paquet.

"Christophe Galtier will not recruit player may play in the African Cup of Nations," a club source is quoted by La Provence.

Ayew is regarded as surplus to requirements by Marseille coach Marcelo Bielsa and linked with a host of French Ligue 1 sides including Nice and Lille.

The 22-year-old has also been targeted by English Premier League side West Bromwich and clubs in the Bundesliga.

    Back to the article, whoever is going to sign this dude must be desperate as this guy is selfish, does not want to pass, only want to shine for himself. Look at the clean pass he should have give to Gyan and Ghana would have hammered Germany 3-1. Same is the Portugal game. Selfish dude that's what he is.

    I'm guessing selfmade is part of the 65% because his comment doesn't have anything to do with this article.

    ASYLUM also means a Psychiatric Hospital. So fans have just gone for mental treatment in Brazil as everyone is aware that, we have no war, no Bokoharam or no high levels of poverty in Ghana. Mental health is our main challenge here in Ghana as 65% of our population is affected.

    Funny coach. Even a player who has been banned from all stadia for four months has just been signed, big time. Just say the guy isn't good enough or you are a racist. What kind of coach will not be happy for Afican football to develop. Racist coach.
