Jordan Pierre Ayew, born 11 September 1991, is a Ghanaian international professional footballer who plays for the French Ligue 1 club Lorient.

Club career


Ayew joined Marseille as a trainee in 2006. 

He signed a 3-year professional contract with Marseille in 2009. 

Ayew made his debut for the senior team on 16 December 2009 in a league game, scoring the equaliser against Lorient. Marseille went on to win the game 2:1.

Ayew scored his second goal against Nice at the Stade Vélodrome on 27 April 2011 in a match which saw his elder brother André Ayew score a hat-trick. 

On 1 November 2011, Jordan and André both started a UEFA Champions League match for the first time against Premier League outfit Arsenal.

On 6 January 2014, he joined Ligue 1 rivals Sochaux on a loan deal until the end of the 2013-14 season.



On 28 July 2014, Ayew signed a four-year contract with Lorient.

Ayew explained the style and quality of play that Lorient proposed was the reason behind the decision.


International career

Ayew made his first senior appearance for Ghana on 5 September 2010, in a 3:0 2012 AFCON Qualification match win against Swaziland, at the Somhlolo National Stadium in Lobamba, Swaziland. 

On 1 June 2012, Ayew scored his first and second international goals in a 2014 World Cup qualification match win against Lesotho, at the Kumasi Sports Stadium in Kumasi, Ghana.

In December 2011, Ayew was named to the Ghana national team provisional 25-man squad for the 2012 Africa Cup of Nations, and in January 2012 he was selected for the tournament's 23-man squad.

In June 2014, he was included in the Ghanaian squad for the 2014 World Cup. 

In Ghana's last warm-up match before the 2014 FIFA World Cup in Brazil on 9 June 2014, Ayew came on as a first-half substitute for the injured Majeed Waris and ended up scoring a hat-trick in a 4:0 victory over South Korea.


Ayew is a practising Muslim and initiates Salat before and after every football match.

Ayew is the son of Maha Ayew and Abedi Pelé, nephew of Kwame and Sola and brother of André, Ibrahim and Imani.
