After featuring in Crystal Palace’s win against Burnley at the weekend, Ayew achieved the significant landmark of reaching 200 appearances for the club.

Meanwhile, in November, he signed a new contract at Crystal Palace that will see him stay at the club until the summer of 2025.

Reacting to his contract extension, Ayew described Crystal Palace as his home and said he feels immense pride anytime he wears the club’s jersey.

“It feels great. I think everyone knows how much I love this club. I feel immense pride every time I put on the Palace shirt; this club is my home, and signing a new contract shows that,” he said.

"Everything about Crystal Palace is special – the fans especially. They are our 12th man. There isn't a fanbase as passionate and supportive as ours in the league; you are always with us from the first minute until the end.”

Ayew added: "I'd like to thank the manager – I have so much respect for Roy [Hodgson], he's been so good to me – and Steve Parish and Dougie Freedman. They're always there when you need them. Not forgetting all of staff at the club; we all have a great bond here.
