Ghana captain André Ayew is poised to mark his return to Ligue 1 after agreeing a deal with Le Havre AC.
The 33-year-old, who has been a free agent since concluding his brief stint with Premier League side Nottingham Forest in the summer, is rejoining the French top-flight after an eight-year hiatus since leaving Olympique Marseille.
Le Havre AC is scheduled to officially unveil Ayew as their new player on Saturday evening, just ahead of their Ligue 1 clash against AS Monaco at the Stade Océane.
Sources indicate that the deal has been finalized, with the official confirmation pending.
Les Ciel et Marine, currently positioned seventh in Ligue 1 after their promotion from Ligue 2, anticipate Ayew’s contribution to bolster their campaign.
The forward, with 47 goals in 182 Ligue 1 matches during his previous tenure, brings a wealth of experience to Le Havre.
In a symbolic return to France, André Ayew will grace the Stade Océane this evening for the Monaco encounter, presenting himself to the Norman public.
Turning 34 in December, Ayew’s arrival is anticipated to inject additional skill and depth into Le Havre’s already impressive performance this season.
He faces competition for a starting position from Lille OSC loanee Mohamed Bayo.
This transfer development comes barely 48 hours after André Ayew’s quite criticized inclusion in the Black Stars’ squad for the 2026 Fifa World Cup qualifying games against Madagascar and Comoros this month.
