Liverpool’s Ayew blow as Ghanaian signs Marseille extension

Liverpool and Arsenal have been scuppered in their bid to sign Andre Ayew.

The 24-year-old was thought to be available for as little as £1.5m, but he has signed a new one-year deal to stay at Marseille.

Speaking about his contract extension, Ayew said: “It’s true I have agreed a new one year deal. The last day, Vincent (Labrune) called me and asked me to stay.”
