Andre Ayew puts career talks on hold

Published on: 18 May 2010

Ghana midfielder Andre Ayew has decided to put discussions on his club future on hold while he concentrates on winning a place in the World Cup squad.

The 20-year-old raised his stock in the transfer market after aiding Provence club Arles Avignon to secure promotion to the French Ligue 1 last week.

Ayew,son of football legend Abedi Pele, has been named in Ghana's preliminary 30-man squad for a pre-tournament training camping in Paris starting May 24.

He hopes to impress head coach Milovan Rajevac with an improved work ethic and earn a World Cup place in his burgeoning career.

Ghana will name its final squad on the 1 June deadline set by Fifa.

Ayew's loan spell at Arles expired at the end of the season and Olympique Marseille are keen on taking him back despite attracting huge interests from other European sides.

But the 2009 Fifa Under-20 World Cup winner is keeping his options open.

"I have to cut short the celebrations for now and look at the World Cup and see how I can contribute to the national team and that is exactly what am trying to do. My next move can wait for now," Andre Ayew told Ghanasoccernet.com

"I don't what will happen tomorrow and where I will be playing next season but my agents will handle that later. Maybe after the World Cup but as at now that is not my priority.

"My focus is the World Cup and that is what is running through my mind."

    Dede, you are a good player but it is your inteligence, determination and self- believe that have brought you this far. I hope other Ghanaian players would learn these good qualities of yours.

    it was good that he took a step back to move one forward. i would have loved dominic adiyiah to have joined a smaller but ambitious club,so that he can develope his talent. players like rabiu mohammed and daniel opare made mistakes by joining top teams that rarely gives chance to youngsters. dede ayew has set a very good example for the others to follow.i hope ac milan loan dominic adiyiah to another team so that he will be able to get some playing time to improve on his skills.
