Black Stars striker, Jordan Ayew, says  the  Crystal Palace family were so good to him during his loan spell and that was basically the reason why he opted to commit his future to the English Premier League (EPL) side

He made this statement after he signed a three-year permanent contract with Palace, subject to international clearance, following the forward’s season-long loan spell with the south London club last season.

"I am very happy [to have returned]. I really enjoyed myself last season. I enjoyed the stadium, the fans, the boys - they were really good to me - everything here was positive and that's why I decided to continue with Crystal Palace," he said after the signing.

The 27-year-old, who made 20 appearances (including 14 starts) in the Premier League for Roy Hodgson’s side, returns to Palace off the back of an impressive Africa Cup of Nations tournament, where he notched two goals in Ghana’s four games in the competition – as well as a successful penalty in his side’s shoot-out defeat to Tunisia in the last round of 16.

Upon completing his transfer to Palace, Ayew revealed his excitement at being back in red and blue ahead of the 2019/20 season, which begins on August 10 with the Eagles’ Premier League opener with Everton. Ayew, has made exactly 100 Premier League appearances and have scored 16 goals.  :
